The Cruising Group got off to an absolutely fantastic start.

Over 50 people attended the meeting on Friday the 1st of March 2024.

Niall and Bernadette McCann were introduced by Vice Commodore Anthony O’Neill.

The McCann’s are coordinating the group.

Niall spoke and outlined the objectives of the group which are:

  1. Encourage owners to get more use out of their boats, both power and sail.
  2. Provide a safe space for boat owners to push their boundaries.
  3. Make available the rich cruising knowledge within the club.
  4. “Cruise in Company” will be a regular programme running every season for club members.
  5. Encourage the group to post their own cruising plans, whether it is a picnic in Sandycove or a trip to Madeira.

Following the details of the Cruise in Company for the season the meeting was opened to the floor.  There was great input from the floor.  A number of suggestions will be put in place immediately.  Thank you to all for your valued suggestions.

A new WhatsApp Group called Cruising Group Kinsale has now been setup.
