Former Cork Port Harbour Master Pat Farnan will take over as the next Admiral of the Royal Cork Yacht Club Crosshaven at its annual general meeting on Monday, January 22. He has been Vice-Admiral, writes Tom MacSweeney.

John Roche, who has served 10 years on the club’s Executive Committee, will tell members at the meeting that plans are taking shape for the 2020 three-hundredth anniversary of the club.

Plans have been drawn up for refurbishment of the club premises with an investment of €100,000 which the members will be asked to approve. Work is underway on refurbishing and improving dressing rooms areas at present.

“We have had a good year,” Roche says in a message to members. “There is a positive buzz around the club and all the signs are that this is set to continue. Growing membership numbers and greater participation in both dinghy and cruiser racing augurs well for the future.”
