Royal Cork Yacht Club celebrated the new year's arrival in style at Crosshaven, Cork Harbour last night in anticipation of a bumper Cork300. 2020 is an important anniversary year in which the oldest yacht club in the world will celebrate its tricentenary writes Bob Bateman.
On a still night on the Owenabue river, over 100 attended the gala dinner with a champagne reception.
At the appointed time, RCYC Admiral Pat Farnan welcomed the new year in with a canon on the club lawn.
