Registration (€25) is open for participating skippers, with early arrivals potentially having a regal audience as the Dutch royal family makes a special visit to the Cork Harbour village on Friday, as previously reported on Afloat.ie.
Celebrations begin at The Oar Bar on Friday evening with live music upstairs from 8pm.
Action on the water gets under way at 2pm on Saturday in the vicinity of The Grassy after a 12.30pm skippers’ briefing at Hugh Coveney Pier.
That will be followed by more craic across Crosshaven’s pubs, with a ‘Pirates’ Pub Crawl’ getting started at Fitzy’s Bar from 7.30pm.
Hopefully there won’t be too may sore heads at the breakfast BBQ on Sunday at Hugh Coveney Pier in aid of Crosshaven Sea Scouts.
Sunday racing for all types of craft gets going at 2pm, before the Parade of Sail to wow spectators at 4pm, and the regatta prize-giving ceremony on the pier at six.
The Sunday also promises to be a fun-filled family day out, with a junior knot-typing competition, crab fishing, fancy dress, face painting, a colouring contest and more from 11am, while Crosshaven RNLI will also be hosting their Open Day at the lifeboat station from 1pm.
