Complimentary Wine and Cheese reception in aid of the new Crosshaven RNLI Lifeboat – Saturday after racing
We cordially invite you all to a complimentary Wine and Cheese reception in the bar in the Clubhouse in aid of the new Crosshaven RNLI Lifeboat, once the Fleets return to the Club on Saturday. A Children’s Menu will be available in the main dining room for the sailors to purchase food from while this reception is taking place.
The Lifeboat ( SAR operations permitting) will be alongside at the club and the Sailors will be able to go to see it. The new Atlantic 85 has the latest in navigation technology and crew equipment, and costs approximately €225,000 new. We hope you will all be able to attend this worthy event. The naming of the new lifeboat will be held at Crosshaven Lifeboat Station while the fleet is afloat at 1400 Sunday. More on the lifeboat can be found here .

Curradinghy will be onsite on Saturday with a selection of the usual items that break/go missing/are forgotten.
Main fleet declarations and measurement
The standard declaration of equipment used with the competitor’s boat must be completed for registration. The IODAI measurement team would be grateful if you could bring along your registration book with all the relevant certificates, so we can advise you on bringing your sailor’s boat and equipment certs up to date with international class rules. Daily safety/equipment checks and on the water checks may also take place – it is intended these checks will be advisory in nature but the measurers and Race Committee reserve the right to take action against non-compliant boats.
