Kinsale Yacht Club Cruise in Company
Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May 2024 to Naval Services Yacht Squadron.

This cruise is being organised by Kinsale Yacht Club. The organisers will provide as much information as possible to participants prior to the commencement of the cruise. However, each boat skipper is individually responsible for their own safety and that of their crew. No responsibility rests with the organisers. Information is given in good faith. This must be used with due regard to the norms of good seamanship, weather, knowledge of the limitations of their own vessel, crew experience and equipment on board. Each vessel must be adequately insured and carry adequate safety equipment.
