Crosshaven House PY1000 2024

Toppers and the RS Teras were first off the line in 2023 as they headed for a turning mark at Coolmore house, chased by the remained of the fleet.

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.

Crosshaven House is an elegant eighteenth century country house where the spaciousness and elegance of the Georgian age is combined with the comforts of modern living. The spacious and elegant reception rooms are complimented by the 5 separate suites on the upper floors, offering the height of luxury with a homely and comfortable feel. Catering equally well for wedding parties, corporate events or private hire, you will be assured a stay to remember.

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.

2023 winner Chris Bateman accepts the newly presented Crosshaven House PY1000 trophy and €700 from Stacey O’Sullivan of Crosshaven House

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.

The inaugural race in 2014 saw 35 entries, including a Rankin!, and was won by an RS400 with a laser in 2nd and 29er in 3rd.
