The 1720 female team racing invitational “Gennaker Cup” will take place in the Royal Cork Yacht Club on Saturday 20th October 2012.

The Cruising Committee are organising a Summer BBQ at Ringabella beach for Sunday the 22nd July. We have arranged for the Club BBQ to be set up on the beach so you only need your own provisions.
John Roche has organised the perfect tide for Sunday afternoon and I’m 99% sure I’ve the weather in the bag. We have arranged one of the club ribs to bring people in and out of the the beach, so everything is arranged and you only need to turn up and enjoy.

All members must clear their spaces in the Dinghy Park and Car Park by Sunday Evening 1st July as building for the Cork Week event will commence on Monday 2nd July
