Royal Cork Yacht Club is looking forward to hosting the CH Marine Irish Optimist National and Open Championships 2014, and we invite you to join us for a great Crosshaven welcome and to experience the fantastic variety of sailing conditions which Cork Harbour offers.

There will be a 4 day racing programme running from Thursday to Sunday (14th -17th August 2014). As with all IODAI events fleets will include Regatta, Junior and Senior. We are keen to welcome not only Irish but international visitors and already interest has been expressed by sailors from as far away as Monaco.

The Royal Cork Yacht Club has a long tradition of hosting large sailing events and will be delighted to welcome the Optimist sailors to our Club. We are sure they will enjoy our facilities, our hospitality and top class race management”. Pat Lyons, Admiral

“We are delighted to be associated with an event run by the Royal Cork Yacht Club and it’s very large Optimist Class”. Nick Bendon, Managing Director of CH Marine

Without a strong team of volunteers and sponsorship we could not host such an event. We thank CH Marine for their generous support and ask all participants to support the sponsors before, during and after the event.
