KYC Marina retains Blue Flag Award

22 May, 2018

The Blue Flag awards took place on Monday in Bray Co. Wicklow. In total 83 Irish beaches and 7 marinas were awarded the An Taisce Blue Flag for 2018.  The Marinas and Beaches who achieved the accolade must adhere to specific criteria related to water quality, information provision, environmental education, safety and site management and comply with water regulations considerably above minimum EU standards.

Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government Eoghan Murphy presented the Blue Flag to Kinsale Yacht Club Rear Commodore (Marina) Matthias Hellstern at the award ceremony in Bray.

Matthias commented afterwards; this is a great achievement for Kinsale Yacht Club and congratulations to all the staff for their hard work ensuring the club retained its blue flag status and also to the berth holders for their continued support.  A lot of work goes on in the background to ensure the Club Marina remains a top quality facility and thank you to all.
