2022 will see the recommencement of a great Irish offshore race, the “Kingstown to Queenstown Race” (K2Q Race). This is a 270-mile race that starts in Dun Laoghaire, rounds the Fastnet Rock and finishes in Cork Harbour. It is run by the Royal Cork Yacht Club in conjunction with the National Yacht Club and ISORA. The race will take place on the weekend of July 1st with boats arriving into Cork in plenty of time to take part in Volvo Cork Week which is expected a strong fleet for the coastal race.
