Royal Cork Yacht Club's National 18 class continues to grow at Crosshaven in Cork Harbour and thanks to existing class members ordering three new boats, three used boats are on the market.

With a 12+ fleet sailing every Wednesday night from May to September, multiple epic harbour races such as the Ballinacurra Cup, the Championship in Cork in 2022, a South Coasts and Nationals annually and all the craic that goes with it.. this is your chance to join this legendary class, says the National 18 Class Captain Charles Dwyer.

Meanwhile, Roger Bannon is upgrading a classic National 18 as Afloat reported here.

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.
