The very popular PY1000 dinghy race takes place on Saturday 20th April 2024 in the Royal Cork Yacht Club in what will be the event’s 10th anniversary. The event is again kindly sponsored by Crosshaven House in a partnership which commenced in 2023. With racing at high tide, the plan as always is to race in the river if conditions allow. This is always an amazing spectacle and a great opportunity to dust down your boat and get it ready for the year ahead.
Following the success of last year’s format, the race will be a pursuit race with boats starting in order of slowest to fastest and the first across the line wins with placings on the water being the final position. This emulates the famous ‘Bloody Mary’ event which takes place in January of each year in London.
This year, the €1,000 prize fund will be split with €700 for the winner, €200 for second and €100 for third. There will also be some great prizes available for youngest sailor, first female helm, youngest combined crew age and oldest combined crew age.
Entry is now open below.
