NYC 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!
