Erin’s half-model is shown at the Royal Cork Yacht Club as Cork Week’s classic boat plans revealed

0

Last week’s talk by Royal Cork Yacht Club helmsman Harold Cudmore on the exploits of the classic Cork Harbor One Design Jap yacht in Saint-Tropez in October provided details on the recent performance of the yacht built in 1897 on the continent , but also revealed details of 2022 plans to bring a classic boat division to Cork Week Regatta next year.

As regular Afloat readers will recall, the restored Jap, skippered by Cudmore and with a crew that included Club Admiral Colin Morehead, won the classic Le Voile Saint Tropez regatta in the south of France.

In a great result for classic Cork Harbor lovers, Royal Cork member Terry Birles and his yacht Erin also took fifth place in their class in Saint-Tropez.

During the club chat, Birles presented a half-model of the classic yacht Erin for display at the Crosshaven clubhouse.

Details of Cork Week’s Classic division will be announced at the Paris Boat Show on December 4th.
