27 Royal Cork sailors and 9 ribs invaded Kinsale at the weekend (some 417 years after the Spanish) and managed to return with some of the silverware – quite unlike the Spanish!
Well done to all our sailors, and a big thanks to the rib & trailer towers – despite being just next door, this event was a logistical challenge as we also provided 2 ribs to KYC for their safety fleet. Thanks to the club staff who helped us get everything in place. Things were a little easier on the return – sea conditions were reasonable so 4 parents and 2 coaches returned their boats by sea. A big shout out to our coaches John Durcan, Rebecca O’Shaughnessy and James McCann who did sterling work encouraging and mentoring our sailors over the event.
