Rear Commodore House Update May 2016

18 May, 2016


Hi All,

I would like to start off by welcoming Mick Glynn as the new club bar manager, he takes over from Stephan Graef who is going up in the world! Steph did a great job for us all and I would like to thank him on behalf of us all and wish him all the best in his career as a pilot. The clubhouse is now on Summer opening hours and is open daily from 9am. Sailing suppers are, as always, available on the nights of club racing and Sunday Lunch from 1pm to 7pm.

One of our members Amy McCarthy has booked a BBQ for a group on Thursday 2nd June and they have booked CADILLAC CATS to play on the night, Amy would like to invite club members to come along on the night, bbq will be available to members and friends after racing.

I have been asked to mention that the Euro Championships is on from the 10th of June to the 10th of July with Ireland kicking off against Sweden at 5pm on the 13th of June.

MICK’S POP UP SUPPER CLUB will be on Saturday 4th of June from 7pm, bookings must be made in advance by Thurs 2nd €25pp for some wonderful food, the menu will be available shortly in the bar. If this proves popular, Mick will continue them over the season so please support him!

Weather permitting we will have a BBQ on Bank Holiday Monday 6th of June from 4pm.
Sailability, Donal Hickey tells me that they are up 25% in numbers from last year and are probably at capacity level.

Squib Laser Dragon’s early season continues

Cruisers: The Gunsmoke Bell will be on Fri 20th May FG 18.55. The Fastnet Race will be on Fri 27th May FG 18.25 for those partaking, our chef will do up some preordered ready meals for you to pop in the oven and reheat, he will put up a sign in the club giving the choices available. The starting time is earlier this year because the race is earlier this year and this gives the competitors more light for the starting hours of the race! The Craemer Stockford is on the same night FG 18.55.

Glandore TGIF3 will be on Saturday 4th June FG9.55 and Glandore to Kinsale on Sunday the 5th of June FG9.55.

The Bertoletti Trophy will be on Fri 10th of June FG18.55

Sea Sunday is on the 12th of June this year.

The Yachting Monthly Triangle Race is coming to Kinsale around the 15th of June, KYC has three entries in the race this year and I would like to wish Cirrus, Siboney and Lobster the best of luck and safe sailing for this event .

Junior Sailing continues to grow and grow and it’s a great sight to see them out on the water each weekend.

I think that is enough for now! As always, if you would like to book a private function, we would love to hear from you.
