The number of racing yachts increased last year at the Royal Cork Yacht Club, which is being described as a sign of “the rise once more of Irish keelboat sailing.”
The members of the club will be told about encouraging developments in cruiser racing at their annual general meeting on Monday night.
This will be the 299th AGM of the club, leading into its Tricentennial Year.
The Under 25 Academy which was started at the club has proved successful and is being followed by a Junior Sailing Academy.
The incoming Admiral, Colin Morehead, who will be elected at the meeting says that the future is bright for sailing.
