The first big event of the Royal Cork Yacht Club’s Tricentenary saw members of all ages take part in the Admiral’s Chace on Saturday 4 July.

The Chace began in the vicinity of Cork Beg when, shortly after 3pm, the Admiral fired a signal shot from each quarter of Adrielle, the Cork300 House Flag was broken out and more than 25 craft weighed anchor in pursuit of the Admiral towards Cage.

Whether sailing, motoring or a combination of both, it didn’t matter as this was very much a relaxed affair with the intention of getting everyone out on the water while referencing some of the club’s 300-year-old rules, history and tradition.

The Royal Cork website has more on the story HERE.

The Admiral’s Chace this Saturday 4 July marks the return to organised activities at the Royal Cork Yacht Club as coronavirus restrictions are relaxed this week.

And in celebration of Cork300, will take a more traditional approach to racing, with Royal Cork Admiral Colin Morehead leading the fleet in Adrielle on a harbour course, flying and sounding a number of signals along the way.

The event is open to all keelboats and motor boats. First gun will be at 15:00 in the vicinity of Cage and full instructions will be provided on the day.

After the chase, if time allows, boats will muster in a safe anchorage in the harbour and then return to the club for The Admiral’s Chace Supper, where a burger and a beverage will be served for €5.

Booking for the chase and for the supper are required via the form available HERE.
