Cove Sailing Club has announced details of the 2022 Cobh to Blackrock Race taking place on Saturday 10 September.

The race will encompass a variety of classes and bands to ensure tight racing in Cork Harbour for the highly coveted trophies, featuring kites, White Sails and return of dinghy racing with the support of Monkstown Bay Sailing Club.

In addition, this year’s race supports the RNLI, with the modest entry fee of €15 per boat going in its entirety to the charity that saves lives at sea.

The club is encouraging all boats to take part. “this is not a formal race incorporating handicaps, and the winner of the rally will be decided by the race committee on the day,” the club says. “So please come along and support the fantastic work done by the RNLI.”
