As many members will know, the famous Americas Cup series is being contested at present in Bermuda between New Zealand and America. This high octane sailing competition is being viewed all over the world and great to see one of our members , Marcus Spillane flying the Royal Cork burgee while attending the event.
Marcus ( pictured above along side New Zealand skipper , Peter Burling and Malav Shroff , President of Asian sailing federation) is currently President of the 49er dinghy class worldwide and has also recently filled the role of President of the fast growing Nacra Dinghy class worldwide. As well as meeting many of the competitors ,the current head of world sailing , Kim Anderson, is also attending with Marcus and the is hope that he will visit the Royal Cork Yacht Club in the not to distant future. Look forward to also seeing Marcus back in home waters soon.
