The highly anticipated Cork Dry Gin Calves Week is just over 14 week away and the excitement has already started to build throughout the sailing community. Details of the 2013 Festival will be announced at a reception to be held at Blackrock Castle on Wednesday the 8th of May from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
This Festival of Sailing has become a very important date in the National Racing Calendar. The Cork Dry Gin Calves Week, run by Schull Harbour Sailing Club, will consists of a four day racing series, including a race around the Fastnet Rock. This year there will be a cap of 60 boats competing so early entry is advisable.
The CDGCW will begin with an opening reception and skippers briefing at the Fastnet Marine Centre on Monday August 5th and the first “Round the Islands” race will kick off on Tuesday 6th. The series will finish Friday 9th with the final race from Schull to the Fastnet rock and back.
The overall presentation of prizes, closing ceremony and live entertainment will take over Schull Main Street each evening. The festival will feature nightly fun and live entertainment around the village for both adults and children. There are plenty of activities during the day for the non-sailors to ensure everybody has a thoroughly enjoyable week.
Cork Dry Gin Calves Week would not be possible without the support of their Title Sponsor Cork Dry Gin and their Festival Associates A&L Castors, Land Rover and Aseco.
