Volvo Cork Week 2022 Comes To A Close

192 boats and 1800 people took part in the biggest Volvo Cork Week for many years, which incorporated the ICRA National Championships.

Teams from Ireland, France, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, and the United States enjoyed a full five-day programme of racing both inside and outside of Cork Harbour, many of which are continuing with more leisure time in the region.

The event attracts 10,000 visitors to Cork and is worth €6.5 million to the local economy.

Racing at Volvo Cork Week was held on five different courses for 14 different classes.

The 2022 edition of Volvo Cork Week lived up to its billing as a huge celebration of Royal Cork Yacht Club’s signature regatta to celebrate their tricentenary.

Established in 1720, the Royal Cork Yacht Club has an enthralling history as the oldest yacht club in the world.

The Volvo Cork Week Prize Giving was opened by Royal Cork Admiral Kieran O’Connell who commented to huge applause: “On behalf of the Royal Cork Yacht Club and our sponsors and partners, I would like to extend the biggest thanks to every single competitor from near and far that gave their time money and effort to attend one of the most iconic sailing events of 2022. As a competitor, I would offer thanks to all of the seasoned race officers and their teams on all five race courses, which in difficult conditions pulled off an outstanding display of race management”.
