NYC Ladies Squads success at Cork Week

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailNYC Ladies Squads success at Cork Week Our NYC Ladies Squad were invited to Cork Week this year as part of the Try Sailing/Women on the Water initiative and we rose to the challenge. RCYC provided us with a 1720 and a warm welcome! Lots of fun was had with great racing in Cork Harbour, staying on site in camper vans, delicious local seafood, fantastic onshore entertainment with music and fireworks and even dolphins to escort us in on the last day. We also won our first trophy coming second in our class! Hopefully this initiative to encourage new groups to try racing in major events will continue at the Dunlaoire Regatta 2017 as it has definitely shown us it can be done and encouraged us to think about where we will go next. On Tuesday’s we now have up to 14 ladies sailing in the club 1720s and an RS Venture which is a great success story for NYC. Come along and join us!
