Today we celebrate the club volunteer, without whom nothing would be possible. We have a lovely photo from Cork Week 1992, give details of how to volunteer for any of this year’s many events and take a irreverent view on what you might end up doing….
This year more than ever the club will be very stretched with the extensive programme of events happening this summer and every bit of help will be most welcome.
Cork Week in July is the major event logistically. The club is currently looking for volunteers for committee boats and race office duties as the primary requirements. The Vice Admiral Kieran O’Connell is chairperson of the organising committee and would love members to contact him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also we have other large events such as the Cock of the North Championship for the National Eighteens, the Optimist Nationals and the Laser Nationals, running in separate weeks of August which also need support. Kieran will be delighted to pass you interest in these events to the relevant organiser.
WayBackWhen is being published as a regular series in the run up to the Cork 300 celebrations next July. The idea is to bring to life the rich history of the Royal Cork through stories and memories from the lifetime of the current membership while being relevant to today’s club. The publication team have been delighted with the level of engagement and help that they have received from members since the first post some five weeks ago. We are slightly overwhelmed with the volume of material coming our way and promise to try to do it justice over the coming few months.
