Cork Harbour's 'Women on the Water' were out in force for the SailCork annual dinner in the Royal Cork Yacht Club in early March.

The Cork Harbour Sailing School presents its students who attend winter navigation courses with their certificates and the celebratory evening also has a guest speaker. 

This year it was the turn of Crosshaven skipper Nicholas O’Leary to describe his endeavours for the forthcoming 2020 Vendee Globe Race.
