logoOnce again we are delighted to announce that the legendary rugby player Doug Howlett will officially open the CH Marine Irish National and Open Championships next month which is being hosted by the Royal Cork yacht club.Doug has been an inspirational figure in driving Munster rugby success here in Ireland and Europe over the last number of years, not to mention the success he achieved while playing for the New Zealand All Blacks on the global stage. To put it in context, Doug remains the all time leading try scorer for the all blacks which is an amazing feat in the modern game.His reputation for sportsmanship, coupled with the commitment and dedication to his sport, makes him a wonderful role model for all our young sailors competing next month. The official opening will take place on Wednesday 13th of August @ 6pm and we look forward to seeing as many parents and sailors as possible in attendance (further details can be found on www.oppienationals.com ) .The opening ceremony will be immediately followed by an invitation series for parents of optimist sailors from various clubs (to be sailed in one design National 18 adult dinghies). Racing will take place directly in front of the royal cork club house so that your full support can be given to your relevant club! .We look forward to seeing you all very soon.
