Sailors Pay Tribute to Cork Week in New Video Series

Cork Week is a special event that holds a place in the heart of many sailors.

Over the winter months, the Royal Cork Yacht Club spent time talking to a number of sailors to understand what is it that makes the biennial regatta so special.

Now thanks to the production expertise of RL Sailing’s Pamela Lee, these many hours of video have now been edited down into short videos which will be released over the coming months.

Up first is the racing: whether it’s coastal races around the Fastnet or the famous Harbour Race, there’s something on offer for everyone at Cork Week.

And the Royal Cork looks forward to welcoming everyone back to enjoy it in 2022.
