Invitational 1720 Sportsboat Match Racing Event for Port of Cork

#matchrace – This Saturday the 29th Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) will be hosting an Invitational Match Racing event in aid of the Nathan Kirwan Trust in the heart of the Cork city on the River Lee. Six teams will be in attendance with University College Cork, University Limerick, Cork Institute of Technology and Baltimore and Howth Ladies all battling it, out one on one.

The event is going to be raced in 1720 Sportsboats with a crew of 5 per boat.

It will be an exciting, close matched and adrenalin-fuelled event starting at 10am alongside Kennedy Quay.

Many highly experienced sailors will be there including some who have competed in the Olympics and at National and International levels across all classes of sailing.

An exciting day of racing assured with the weather looking great for the event, any members of the public wishing to watch the event can do so from the banks of Kennedy Quay, say organisers.

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.
