Cove Sailing Club launched an exciting centenary programme at Cork Harbour's Sirius centre in Cobh, the former clubhouse of the Royal Cork Yacht Club on Friday, May 17 writes Bob Bateman.
In order to mark the special occasion, CSC Commodore Kieran Dorgan published a 100-year anniversary booklet commemorating the club's important history from 1919 to 2019.
The well attended launch night for the 2019 season – that included the display of vintage club trophies – got an extra boost with the news that Cork County Council had approved Cove Sailing Club plans to construct a new 25 berth marina located at Whitepoint, Cobh as Afloat previously reported here.
In cruiser racing news from Cobh, Johanna Murphy, the Commodore of SCORA, who attended the CSC function, told Afloat she is expecting a sizeable south coast fleet of 25 boats to race from Great Island Sailing Club in Cobh to Dunmore East on June 1st, the first time the Cork fleet has sailed east to Waterford in a number of years.
The CSC programme was quickly underway with Saturday's race to Ballincurra as Afloat reports here
