On Saturday the 8th October The Royal Cork are delighted to host an evening of entertainment and dining with the renowned sailor and author John Kretschmer.
We are eagerly anticipating a wonderful evening’s dining and afterwards, entertainment from renowned sailor and author John Kretschmer. John has been sailing professionally for 30 years, covering some 300,000 sea miles, has written ten books, including his account of rounding the Horn in a contessa 32. The evening will be filled with tales from flirting with mermaids to stories of ocean crossings and far flung adventure. This evening is keenly priced at €20 a head.
And if all that adventure was not enough – YOU could be the lucky one to join John on a 10 day sailing trip on his Kaufman 47 “Quetzal” in Spring 2012 starting in Almerimar and finishing in Barcelona. The trip will be a mix of overnight passage making and day sails and will include stops in Cartegena, Ibiza and Majorca.
John has very kindly sponsored the trip. Tickets are on sale @ €10 each or 3 for €20 to Club Members and the winning ticket will be drawn on the night. Table reservation essential for what we believe will be a sell out evening.
