Like a fine seafood platter, Cork Week dishes up a huge variety of courses and today’s Harbour Race was the centrepiece of a phenomenal week of racing. The entire international fleet racing at Cork Week enjoyed a scenic race in Cork’s historic harbour. The weather may have closed in once again but the myriad of racing boats parading passed Cobh provided a spectacular finale to what has been a very special regatta.

Fleet A will sail a Windward Leeward course south east of Roches point today whilst the fleet B [...]
