A Royal Cork Yacht Club members forum at Crosshaven reviewed the 2019 racing season, ECHO handicapping and discussed options for 2020 last night before the club held its league prizegiving.

The winners of its series of year-long club leagues in Cork Harbour were applauded and presented with a fine range of trophies.

Prizes were presented by the Club's Rear Admiral Kieran O'Connell.

Another club prizegiving will be held on December 7th where the Club's own sailor of the year award will be made.
