The Cork Week entry list for July's regatta stands at over 110 boats with 17 weeks still to go before the first gun. 

The biggest class so far is the 33-boat 1720s that have their roots in Crosshaven. Royal Cork organisers say entries for this sportsboat division show 'no sign of slowing'.

There are 30 IRC boats already entered and ten boats have also entered the coastal offshore discipline.

As Afloat reported earlier, the recently announced Classic Boat division has 25 boats with a promise of 20 alone coming from France.

RCYC say "we are now seeing the U25 entries come in across the IRC and 1720 classes".

"The IRC entries are building throughout the classes and no doubt the growing Quarter Tonner movement in the Royal Cork will draw in top-class racing for smaller boats too", Royal Cork state.

In what will be one of the first showings of the new class in Ireland, three Cape 31s are also listed in the one-design entry; RCYC's own Antix together with Blast from the Royal Irish and Valkyrie from Howth.

Cork yachts are early entries into the Beaufort Cup, the regatta within Cork Week designed for emergency services. The ICRA Boat of the Year Nieulargo is entered along with the Royal Navy's Jolly Jak Tar and Kinsale's Meridian.
