Volvo Cork Week gets underway on Sunday 14th July 2024, with racing beginning on Monday 15th July.

Event entry numbers have been steadily climbing, with entries received from far and wide, and the dedicated event team at the RCYC continue their work on preparing for another epic event.

RS21 UK & Ireland Cup charter

The Royal Cork YC has partnered with the INSS and RS Sailing to provide a special opportunity for those challenged by time or crew availability or find themselves otherwise unable to enter Cork Week on their own boat.

Volvo Cork Week will host a round of the RS21 UK & Ireland Cup in 2024 for the first time. This event is fully supported by the RS21 class, and race prepared boats are available for charter.

The boats will be delivered to the RCYC and fully prepared for you, launched and ready to race – so no need for time consuming delivery trips. You just need to provide turn up with your crew, hoist the sails, and be prepared to have fun!

Charter schedule

Handover of charter boats will be on Saturday the 13th of July, providing two days to get familiar with the boat in advance of racing. Representatives from INSS and RS Sailing will be on hand with advice on boat rigging, tuning, and handling on those training days and as required throughout the whole event. All charter boats will be handed back after sailing on Friday 19th July.

The RS21 Class has from the outset enforced a strict One Design ethos, ensuring that all boats across the fleet are equal and compliant with class rules to ensure good racing. The charter boats and sails provided by the class have been lightly used and professionally maintained, offering good value for money and competition on a level playing field.

Charter bookings are live on the RS Club website here: RS21 – Cork Week Charter Details. The cost is €2500 per boat which, for a no-hassle, seven-day, ready-to-sail competitive package represents excellent value for money.  Volvo Cork Week event entry is separate and includes 5 days of racing, crew entertainment, boat launch and recovery, marina berthage and trailer storage.
