80 senior and junior main fleet Optimist sailors launched in a safe and controlled manner today at Royal Cork Yacht Club for the AIB Optimist Nationals 2020.
Gavid Dean told us "The launch went well this morning and all the sailors were very compliant with the systems put in place to ensure the event is Covid Safe.
Royal Cork Yacht Club's number one priority is the safety of members, the children and coaches attending the event, Club Staff and the local community. To ensure this they have introduced a Covid-19 protocol and taken a number of measures.
