Cork300 was a celebration of Royal Cork Yacht Club’s 300th anniversary, where it all began, and Cork’s maritime haven.

In advance of the Coronavirus pandemic, this was shaping up to be one of the most hotly anticipated events in the sailing world in 2020 with sailing communities throughout Europe and as far as Australia, Hong Kong and San Francisco expected to attend the world famous biannual Volvo Cork Week, along with a number of other large events, celebrating the Worlds oldest yacht club.

In light of the Coronavirus, the schedule was restricted and a number of difficult decisions were made. However, in the three hundred years since the foundation of the Royal Cork Yacht Club we have faced many adversities and we are confident that working together we will see our clubs, our countries and global sailing community come through these difficult and challenging times. Indeed we look forward to welcoming as many sailors as possible back to Cork Week in 2022.
