The Great Gathering

July 2020, Cork Harbour, Ireland

In July 2020 the Royal Cork Yacht Club will celebrate where it all began with a “Great Gathering” of yachtsmen and yachts from all around the world. A key element of this Great Gathering will be a series of events across Cork Harbour which will celebrate its position as Irelands maritime haven – allowing those gathered to discover the land, its people and their culture.

The keys dates for these events are Friday 3rd July to Sunday 24th July 2020, which will see an itinerary of activities afloat and ashore accompanied by a varied social schedule that would impress even the founding members of the club.

These events will be preceded by Sea Fest and followed by Cork Week and a Cruise in Company along the Wild Atlantic Way so Cork Harbour will be the only place to be in July 2020.
