This year's Taste of Wicklow will run in conjunction with Wicklow Sailing Club's Volvo Round Ireland Yacht Race.

The Round Ireland is Ireland’s premier offshore yacht race, and the second longest race in the Royal Ocean Racing Club calendar.  Famously starting in Wicklow since it's inception, the race is uniquely identified by a series of waypoints around the Irish coast and has a long standing history of attracting competitors from all across the globe.
