Cove Sailing Club Commodore Awarded June Sailor of the Month

Last weekend we awoke to the news that our Commodore Kieran Dorgan was awarded Junes sailor of the month for services to sailing.

This is a huge honour and well deserved we look forward as a club to celebrating this fantastic recognition in due course.

Please see below afloat press release..

While other clubs have found it a big enough challenge simply resuming sailing in a regulation-compliant way, the 101-year-old Cove Sailing Club in Cork Harbour has also been bringing its new marina on stream, and in addition to resuming club sailing, it staged the first open event of the delayed 2020 season, the Squib Southerns, on July 25th-26th. It has been a superb team effort, but all teams need effective leadership, and CSC Commodore Kieran Dorgan has been providing it in a family tradition – his father Barry was in the same role, while on the water Kieran himself is no stranger to the front of the fleet with his First 36.7 Altair. source
