ACCBank Cork Week announce details of the CORINTHIAN CUP. As entries continue to arrive at Race Headquarters in Crosshaven for ACCBank Cork Week 2008 the amateur ethos of the regatta has been further reinforced by the presentation to regatta organisers of the “Corinthian Cup” by the Sisk Group for competition in the highly competitive Class IRC 0.
Eligibility to compete for this trophy has been finalised and those boats in this class with one ISAF classified Group 3 sailor only amongst the crew will be entitled to compete. Skippers are required to submit their crew list with details of crew classification`s prior to registration. The Race Committee are confident that this Cup will further enhance the reputation of Cork Week as a regatta to suit sailors and yachts of all categories.
Entries continue to grow in all classes and particularly so in the J109 and SB3 One Design Classes. The J109’s are having their Irish Championships as part of the regatta and their current entry level is 27 boats, which will ensure a hotly contested title while the SB3 class expect in excess of 40 competitors in their class.
The International Invitation Series to be held in J80’s on Saturday 12th July also promises to be an exciting opening feature to the week’s racing with wide interest from both Irish and International sailors in the opportunity to participate in a level rating class against some of the world’s most prominent sailors.
