The oldest one design dinghy in the world comes to the oldest Yacht Club in the world
Today Eva entered Cork dinghy fest, for those of you that don’t know Eva, she is on of the oldest one design dinghies in the world. In fact she is the 33rd oldest of the current fleet.
It was with great excitement that I logged the first entry for Cork dinghy fest this morning. It is not often that you get the oldest One Design dinghy fleet in the world racing at the oldest yacht club in the world. But come this August that is exactly what will be happening on the waters of Cork Harbour. Helmed by Orla O Flynn and crewed by Dermot O Flynn Eva will be one of we hope five Water Wag competing at Cork Dinghy fest.
It is really looking like CDF15 is going to be a unmissable event and fresh from a entertainment meeting last night it looks like the shore side of the event will not disappoint either, with Apres sail entertainment live music in the evening and Anto’s famous BBQ every day after sailing. There will also be public talks by national and international sailors and daily tidal briefings from local sailing guru Eddie English covering tidal conditions for each race area the next day.
We are really looking forward to see you all come August.
