Supervised sailing resumes for single-handed dinghies, as well as multi-handed dinghies crewed by single households, from Monday 8 June at the Royal Cork Yacht Club, with the beginning of Phase 2 of relaxing coronavirus restrictions.
Events being planned for the next three weeks in this new phase include a pop-up cruise in company within the Cork Harbour area, and possible overnight stays at anchor in places such as Oysterhaven and Kinsale.
Phase 3, which is scheduled for Monday 29 June, is expected to see the return of racing for single-handers and same household multi-handers, as well as keelboats, while national and regional events should be allowed to resume in Phase 4 in the second half of July.
Meanwhile, the Royal Cork has put two more trophies on display in the clubhouse for returning sailors to see. One was recently presented, that being the ICC Fastnet Award in recognition of the club’s tricentenary.
But the other comes from the club’s past — in the form of the restored Crosshaven Regatta Roche Perpetual Trophy, recently rediscovered in an attic clearcut. The Royal Cork has more on the story HERE.
