The 295th Annual General Meeting of the Royal Cork Yacht Club was held last night at its Crosshaven clubhouse electing a new Club Admiral as part of the formalities writes Claire Bateman.

The cordial meeting enjoyed a full house with some good participation from members.

The Executive had completed a two year term of office and former Admiral Pat Lyons conducted the business of the meeting until it was time for the election of officers.

Vice Admiral, John Roche, was duly elected as the new Admiral of the Royal Cork Yacht Club. The election of the Officers of the Executive Committee followed. It was then time to elect two members to the Finance and Administration Committee. Two members to the Bar, Catering and House Committee and two members to the Consultancy and Advisory Committee.

The discussion of General Business then followed and there being no further questions Admiral Roche declared the meeting closed and invited all present to join him for refreshments.
