From Tuesday the 6th to Friday the 9th of August the crews of 60 yachts will experience the excitement of sailing around the islands off Schull Harbour, in the pristine waters of Roaring Water Bay and beyond. Already over 45 boats have secured their entry to compete at the Festival of Sailing. Entries are well ahead of last year. This year there will be a strict cap of 60 boats competing to ensure an enjoyable experience for all.
Schull is set in the centre of an area of outstanding natural beauty, the prevailing southwesterly winds having travelled more than 2,000 miles of open sea. The air is clean and the sea is beautifully clear. Schull Tourism and Schull Harbour Sailing Club have joined forces to ensure a week full of fun and entertainment, for sailors and non-sailors alike. Cork Dry Gin Calves Week will feature nightly presentations of prizes, live entertainment by local musicians and a Food Market at the pier amongst other things.
Cork Dry Gin Calves Week would not be possible without the support of our Title sponsor Cork Dry Gin and Festival Associates A&L Castors, Land Rover and Aseco.
