A prestigious award is being added to the roster of prizes for the upcoming O’Leary Life – Sovereigns Cup 2017, namely the “Family Boat Award”. The award is the brainchild of the title sponsors, O’Leary Life and will be awarded to the best placed boat, with 2 or more direct family members sailing on board.


The prize, is a beautiful Latitude 3D nautical chart of Kinsale Harbour, including the Sovereigns, which the winning skipper/owner will get to keep.



Commenting at the launch of this new prize at the O’Leary Life Cork offices, Ronan Goggin managing director of O’Leary Life noted “For us, family is the mainstay of our business, essentially looking after people and corporates through all life stages. We therefore wanted to reflect our family ethos within our sponsorship of the event and acknowledge family members sailing together”


Regatta Director Mike Walsh added “For us Sovereigns Cup is very much about family too. We encourage competitors to bring their families to Kinsale and enjoy our magnificent town. That is why we put such an emphasis on the day time and social shore side activities”


With over 100 boats expected, the organisers are very much looking forward to welcoming competitors and their families to Kinsale and would encourage anyone who hasn’t yet entered to do so as soon as possible. Full details at www.sovereignscup.com
