• 2020 was a special year for the club as we celebrate
  our Tricentenary
• To mark the occasion we had a series of events lined
  up including the biannual and world famous Volvo
  Cork Week, the Optimist Nationals, the Laser
  Nationals, and the All Ireland Sailing Championships
• Unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic had a severe
  impact on the hosting of these events so we are
  extending our celebrations into 2021 and 2022
