The 19th AGM of SCORA, the south coast racing association, was held on Tuesday at the Royal Cork Yacht Club Crossshaven writes Bob Bateman

The well-attended meeting included representatives of all the Cork harbour clubs in addition to Kinsale, Waterford and Schull.

SCORA Commodore Johanna Murphy reported on a successful sailing season particularly with the introduction of the combined Cork harbour club leagues, together with the successful reintroduction of additional offshore races.

A discussion on handicaps and the new club class bands concluded that the system appeared to be working well, and it was agreed to reform the south coast handicap review committee.

A slide show of the season's action on the water was provided for members and fourteen of the overall league winners were presented with framed photographs taken during the 2019 events.

We've got a favour to ask

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.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
