Volvo Cork Week, which will take place at Crosshaven's Royal Yacht Club next July, is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet.

VOLVO Cork Week, which will take place at Crosshaven’s Royal Yacht Club next July, is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet. The committee has invested a lot of time looking at how best to offer a tailored experience to as many competitors as possible. 

As a result, this year will have a brand new format giving people the option to build their own regatta from the multi-series format of the new event, from July 16th to 21st . 

Competitors have the option to enjoy the full five days of world class racing and great entertainment; there is an option of a new, three-day, series for those that can’t commit to the five days. If participants enjoy the longer offshore style racing, both fully crewed or shorthanded, then that is also on offer, and if participants would like to hold their own class championships, finishing on the Saturday, then that is also an option.

With this new format, and again teaming up with Ireland’s principal sponsor of sailing events Volvo Car Ireland, the organising committee hopes to attract more sailors from more areas of sailing and from a more diverse demographic. 

This, accompanied by six nights of world-class entertainment, will again make for a world-class event in July.

The online entry system is live and the next offer is set to go at the end of the month.
