A quick peep at some of the early entries: Keronimo will return to Cork from the Solent again this season. Keronimo a Ker 40 with the distinctive HH on the bow and the leading points scorer of the GBR Red Team, overall winners at the last 2012 Commodores’ Cup, is all set to participate in Volvo Cork Week 2014 and what a welcome visitor she will be. She was last seen in Cork at Kinsale Yacht Club’s Sovereign’s Cup in 2013.
Also entered is Andrew Jones’ Fox in Sox the cleverly named X 43 from the Royal Irish Yacht Club and another return visitor will be Liam Shanahan’s J109 Ruth who will provide competition for the local J109s.
From our friendly neighbour KYC Yacht Club Tony and Alice Kingston will be joining us in their DB1 Luv Is.
Leading the charge on the White Sail front will be Tom, Donal and Declan O’Mahony from our own Royal Cork Yacht Club.
The event is very fortunate to have a new title sponsor with Volvo Car Ireland coming on board in association with Mark Whitaker, Group CEO of the Johnson and Perrott Motor Group the well known key Volvo Dealer.
