Winter sail training for the Royal Cork Yacht Club Under 25 Keelboat Academy sponsored by EY is continuing in Cork Harbour this February writes Bob Bateman
Primarily using the club's 1720 sportsboats, the Academy is made up of 16 and 25 year-olds who get the chance to experience local sailing in the harbour plus a chance to compete nationwide at Summer events.
As Afloat.ie reported recently here, EY has sponsored the U-25 squad and as part of that North Sails Ireland provided a new spinnaker.
Last season Royal Cork put teams in for match racing events as well as Wave regatta in Howth YC, Volvo Cork Week, the 1720 Nationals and Europeans.
