I attach the sailing instructions and provisional entry list for the race on Saturday from Pwllheli to Wicklow. I also attach a suggested course for the race. However, the actual course will be decided on Friday and will be texted and emailed to all. The course will also be given by VHF at the start of the race. This is also your last opportunity to qualify for the Round Ireland Race. I also attach the tides for Pwllheli.
