Former Club Commodore, Tom Roche of Axiom Private Clients has come on board as title sponsors for this year’s Spring Series at Kinsale Yacht Club writes Brian Goggin.
Tom and his wife Ursula have campaigned their Solona 45 - Meridian for many years now and have been big supporters of cruiser racing along the South Coast
Meridian will once again have strong competition in class Zero from Conor Doyle’s XP 50 Freya as well as visitors from Royal Cork, Conor Phelan’s Jump Juice and Denis Murphy’s Nieulargo.
Commenting on the announcement Michael Walsh Commodore of Kinsale Yacht Club said “we are always so thankful to our sponsors and volunteers within Kinsale Yacht Club and we are very grateful to Tom and Axiom Private Clients who have come onboard as sponsors. The Spring Series is always a fantastic way for our cruiser racers to hone their skills and crew work for their busy season ahead”
And 2020 will certainly be a busy season for Tom Roche and crew as Tom has organised a crew from Kinsale to travel to Malta where they have chartered a new X Yacht to take part in this year’s Middle Sea Race.
This year’s Spring Series will run from 5th to the 25th of April under the stewardship of recently retired Commodore David O’Sullivan as Principle Race Officer.
