Online Club flies the flag

30th November -0001
Club, Ireland’s first online yacht club, has just been granted a warrant to fly its own ensign by the Mercantile Marine Office of the Department of Transport.
Club Commodore Stuart McNamara expressed his delight as this latest recognition follows the recent affiliation of as a Category 2 Yacht Club by the Irish Sailing Association.

The club, which has free and open membership, now has over 1,500 registered members with an additional 4,500 casual viewers of the club’s online forums each month. CPB’s online forums now comprise over 2,500 threads under active discussion covering sailing, motor cruising, inland waterways, ribs, diving, watersports, marine electronics and mechanics as well as advice forums for beginners to boating. The club was originally set up to provide an easy entry into the world of Irish boating for people with no previous boating history who have bought – or are considering buying – their first boat.
