Yacht clubs around the globe are being encouraged to ‘Go Green’ for St Patrick’s Day to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the oldest yacht club in the world.
Every St Patrick’s Day, famous landmarks around the world turn green in celebration of the Irish national holiday, from Rome to Rio and London to Las Vegas.
This year, the Royal Cork Yacht Club is inviting all sailing clubs in Ireland and around the world to ‘Go Green’ on Tuesday 17 March to help mark its historic tricentenary.
To take part, simply shine a green light on your building or dress in green on the day and share your photos with the Royal Cork Yacht Club via email on [email protected]
Sailing communities throughout Europe and as far as Australia, Hong Kong and San Francisco are registering to attend the Cork300 celebrations — which will take place primarily during the months of July and August — with an exciting variety of nautical and onshore events scheduled, including the International Power Boat Festival on 11-12 July.
As part of the celebrations, communities across Cork Harbour will host a vast array of sailing, racing, food, and entertainment events, along with a number of talks, ensuring Cork will be the only place to be in Summer 2020.
