A quality fleet assembling for Volvo Cork Week 2024

Racing at Volvo Cork Week 2024 begins on Monday 15th July and will continue daily until Friday 19th July. Event entry numbers have been steadily climbing, with entries and expressions of interest received from far and wide, including Scotland, Turkey, Hong Kong and USA.

The latest entry list is now published at www.corkweek.ie/entry-list and showcases the impressive quality and variety of boats already entered in the Volvo Cork Week fleet.

The Principal Race Officer for Volvo Cork Week 2024 will be the vastly experienced Dave Lovegrove, ably supported by local expert Ciaran McSweeney as Assistant PRO, and working closely with his team of Race Officers presiding over the various courses during the week.

The RO team will meet each morning to review weather conditions and plan the best racing possible for all fleets – perhaps taking advantage of a reliable afternoon sea-breeze on calmer days or utilising the deep sheltered waters of the harbour to continue racing in more inclement weather. This flexibility has been enshrined in the Cork Week sailing instructions throughout the event’s long history, meaning that Cork Week has never failed to provide racing.

The event boasts a large entry of J-boats of all sizes, many of which are sure to be in the mix for prizes. Also of note are some big X-boats which will face off for the first time. The high-performance Cape31 class already have a number of entries, with more anticipated in the coming weeks. Entries in the championship events that are held as part of Volvo Cork Week, such as the 1720 Europeans and the RS21s UK&I Cup, continue to grow. The increasingly popular non-spinnaker classes are also filling up with entries from a wide variety of clubs across the UK and Ireland
