2012 Cobh to Blackrock Race – roundup

Yesterday’s Cobh to Blackrock race sponsored by the Port of Cork and Union Chandlery was a great success and we’d like to thank all our members, competitors, families and friends for once again turning out in huge numbers to support this great old race.

We had approx. 80 boats of all shapes and sizes competing and the “all-in” start for the 60 cruisers was very exciting both for the spectators and crews alike.

We had about 40 ribs & boats rafted up at the City Quays marina and a big crowd gathered at The Boardwalk Restaurant who once again hosted the club for the prize-giving and very popular barbecue.

The raffle held after the prize-giving raised a massive €650 for the Joe English Trust. Thanks to everyone who gave so generously and to those who donated prizes.

Full results will be up on the website shortly.
