About the Round Ireland Race campaign:

The Round Ireland Race is one of the most challenging events in the offshore racing calendar and is held every two years!

Following the cancellation of the race in 2020 Global Yacht Racing are now looking ahead to the next race in 2022. Global Yacht Racing have all their yachts available for this epic  Ireland race challenge. We offer a full race package that ensures crew train together and have the minimum experience requirement of 500 nautical miles of RORC offshore racing, on the boat entered into the race. This results in our teams being not only ready to tackle this unique event but also able to be competitive in their class.

Why we love the Round Ireland Race

The Round Ireland Race is a challenging event, but we ensure that it’s also a competitive experience. This race, approx 700 nm in distance, is incredibly challenging both tactically and physically and the weather can often turn up some surprises; in short you never know what you’re gonna get!
