While the restoration of Conor O’Brien’s ketch Ilen continues apace in Oldcourt, Co Cork, apprentice boatbuilder Elan Broadley, pictured above, is currently getting the ship’s tender ready for a debut at the Baltimore Wooden Boat Festival later this month. Winkie Nixon looks at how a punt originally designed for John Valentine Sisk’s Culleann 91 years ago has been given a modern twist at the A.K. Ilen School in our story here
Meanwhile, a battle of Laser Radial titans produces our Youth Sailor of the Month, the Rating Office names its new IRC director, concerns are raised over the future of the Valentia Island carferry, and Cobh commemorates the arrival of the US Navy into Cork Harbour 100 years ago
