We’re delighted to announce the introduction of a Novice Cup as a new feature of this year’s Masters Championship.
This year’s Irish Laser Association’s Masters Championship sponsored by MGM Boats and taking place in Royal St. George Yacht Club will see us trialing a new format specifically for first-time adult competitors.
Less experienced sailors who enter the two-day event taking place on June 12th and 13th can elect to participate in the Novice Cup format. Only those who have not competed in a regional or national Laser event in the past 5 years can participate.
Participants will race in the same races as all other sailors, but will only have the scores from their two best race results across both days counted. Participants can therefore choose to race on just one or both days and can decide to join in on however many races they wish.
There are no changes to the Notice of Race or Sailing Instructions to facilitate this. All entries to this year’s event will be invited to identify themselves as seeking to participate in this additional informal prize category.
The early bird entry for the event closes Sunday, May 30th. Anyone who enters before that date can benefit from a reduced fee plus entry into a raffle for a £100 voucher from Lennon Racewear. Full event details are available on laser-ireland.com
