Royal Cork Boats were well represented today (Sun) at Glandore Harbour Yacht Club At Home. Mediterranean conditions prevailed with sun, wind and sparkling blue water. When conditions such as existed today prevail this is a little piece of paradise tucked away in West Cork surrounded by glorious scenery.
It was apt that they were rewarded with these conditions for the celebration of their 25th anniversary. The mouth of the harbour is marked by the Adam and Eve Islands and the cruisers had a start south east of this point using Neil Prendeville’s Mary P as committee boat and a race officer team that included event organiser Cormac O’Carroll. The 16 knot breeze outside the harbour was from the south west, while inside the harbour there was a lighter breeze that one would guess was more from the north west and this was where the Squibs were sailing their two day championship.
The club is a hive of activity in furthering its amenities and they are very actively raising funds for a new club house. They had a raffle for a new car on offer today to further this project. This raffle will run throughout the season when some lucky punter will win a nice new Peugeot. Also they had a novel event of a Pig Roast-Barbeque with live music by the Roaring Forties and were looking forward to a great night of entertainment.
