As previously announced, this year’s Calves Week will be a four day series from Tuesday, August 7th to Friday, August 10th, 2012.

The new “Cork Dry Gin” Calves week format will facilitate those who wish to visit Schull for just one week (Saturday to Saturday), but of course for others the option of sailing in Baltimore, Crookhaven and Schull regattas as well is still available.

Commodore Dwyer reports they are working closely with the Schull Community to provide a Carnival atmosphere in the town during the event. There will be a presentation of prizes in the town after racing each day.

Entry to this year’s event is limited, so please get your entries in as soon as possible and avoid disappointment. Further details   086 2409249. Entry form on SHSC website.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Schull for the usual mix of racing and fun and the unique atmosphere of West Cork at its best.
