The Port of Cork are once again providing complimentary overnight berthage for all competitors at their City Quays Marina. The prizegiving will take place at the Boardwalk restaurant where a barbecue will be available for competitors (priced around €10) or their usual menu will be on offer if you prefer. Hopefully the weather will be better than last year and we can avail of the great outside seating area but if the weather is not so good we will have space allocated to us inside so there is no excuse not to come back.

This year we will also be holding a raffle in aid of the Joe English Trust and tickets will be available on the day with the draw being held after the prize-giving. As always we’d appreciate as many boats and crews coming back to support the on-shore activities as possible.
