Golden Jubilee Figaro in Kinsale
June 5, 2019 - June 9, 2019
The Figaro URGO sailing race will be coming to Ireland for its 50th season with a visit into Kinsale on 5th June 2019 and departing on Sunday 9th June 2019
The Figaro has been described as the ‘Tour de France’ on the ocean. The Figaro route is tough and all done solo! The first leg is 550 miles from Nantes and around the Fastnet Rock to Kinsale and then its 615 miles around the Isle of man Roscoff. From there its a 450 mile Channel course around the Scilly Isles and Jersey back to Roscoff and then a final 450-mile leg to Dieppe for a Grand Final. The event is hosted by Kinsale, Co Cork & managed by The Kinsale Experience Company on its 50th anniversary and has two Irish entrants, Joan Mulloy & Tom Dolan. We want to make sure everyone visiting has a fantastic Kinsale Experience over the course of their stay.
