West Cork's Calves Week coming up!

7th July 2009

Schull Harbour Sailing Club has announced that Neill Prendeville of Kinsale Yacht Club has been appointed Principal Race Officer for Calves Week, which will run from 31 July to 9 August. He will lead an experienced race team that will include Denis Kiely of SCORA and Schull Harbour Club Commodore Morgan O’ Donovan.




The event this year will incorporate the McWilliamOne South Coast Championships to be sailed in both Baltimore and Schull from Friday 31 July to Tuesday 4 August. The overall SCORA prize giving ceremony will take place in the Courtyard, Schull, on Tuesday evening.
The event will feature racing for eight classes, from Class Zero to Class Four in the cruisers, together with two white sail classes and a sports boat class to cater for the growing West Cork 1720 fleet.
The traditional Wednesday Cape Clear fun regatta will continue to provide the crews with a break from the intensity of the week’s competition before returning to Schull on Thursday for an inshore race, while on Friday the fleet will round the Fastnet Rock with a finish in Crookhaven, where the boats will overnight prior to Saturday’s regatta.
The exhausting but hugely exhilarating week will conclude on Sunday 9 August with Schull Regatta where racing will take place on two courses in Roaring Water Bay, with the closing ceremony and overall presentation of trophies in the Harbour View Hotel. Team
