The annual Cobh to Blackrock Race will take place on Saturday 3rd of September.
The event is sponsored by Port of Cork and Union Chandlery with the prize giving being hosted by The Sextant Bar.
First Gun will be at 1400hrs and the starting area just off the promenade in Cobh.
Free overnight berthing is available on a first come first served basis and is kindly provided by Port of Cork.
All participants are reminded that in addition to racing under IRC and ECHO the club will be running a Standard Sail Fleet. This is to facilitate sailors who don’t normally race to become part of a fantastic day out and be part of a large fleet sailing up to Blackrock Castle.
Anyone wishing to participate in the event is asked to register their interest and fill in the on line application which can be found on the Cove Sailing Club website.
The online registration is essential in order to manage the fleet and results as there was in excess of 60 boats in the fleet last year and already interest is huge.
It is important to note that any boat not registered before the cut off will not get a time, this could affect boats who’s clubs are using the race as part of their September League.
Please note that all those who intend to take part in the Standard Sail Fleet , must hold sufficient insurance to take part in the race.
Here’s looking forward to a fantastic and safe day out on the water.
