Cruising

Summer Cruising in Company

One thing the covid crisis has made us value highly is access to leisure amenities and I think we all know how lucky we are to live in Cobh. On last June 1st when restrictions were finally eased somewhat, boats of every type from yachts, fishing boats, ribs, motorboats and kayakers flocked onto the harbour. The sheer joy of feeling the sun beating down and the wind in the sails was second to none.

Despite the worsening of covid, we can only look forward with guarded optimism to the season ahead. , we have put together a local summer cruising in company itinerary for both yachts and motorboats, which can be added to over the coming months.

As our Commodore Niall said, we are looking for more members to become involved in the cruising committee and ask people to get in touch; the more the merrier! Below are a couple of dates for the sailing diary!

  • Cork City Cruise – June Bank Holiday Weekend – Saturday 5th June to Sunday 6th June
  • Rinabella Bay as seen from Roches Point Lighthouse – Cruise in company and BBQ on the beach – Saturday 19th June
  • Kinsale Cruise – Overnight with dinner at Kinsale Yacht Club – Saturday 10th July to Sunday 11th July
