Schull Harbour Sailing Club has circulated past participants this week on its plans for staging West Cork's big regatta, Calves Week 2021.

"It is our intention to run Calves Week in its usual slot in the 1st week of August (August 3rd to 6th) subject of course to the health situation that pertains closer to the event date", Commodore Sean Norris told Afloat.

The West Cork Club faces significant and multiple challenges in planning and running the event that was cancelled in 2020.

"We are currently working our way through these (some more easily overcome than others) and once we are satisfied that we have adequately addressed those challenges we will issue a Notice of Race. We will also await the updated Government Plan for Living with Covid which we understand is due shortly, Norris said.

Calves Week Regatta takes place in Schull in early August, continuing the annual tradition in West Cork since the inception of the Schull Harbour Sailing Club in 1884.

In more recent years, a more compact schedule as an alternative to the older two-week even has proved popular.

The four-day Calves Week Championships with the usual mix of courses taking in the Fastnet Rock and many of Carbery's Hundred Isles, together with laid courses in Roaringwater Bay is one of Irish sailing's enduring fixtures. 

A daily prize-giving takes place on Main Street in Schull, which sees a nautical festival theme for the village organised by local businesses.
