The Cork Dry Gin Calves Week

Monday 5th - Friday 9th August, 2013

The Cork Dry Gin Calves Week, run by Schull Harbour Sailing Club since 1984, in its new format consists of a four day racing series, including a race around the Fastnet Rock.

The 2013 Festival of Sailing begins with an opening reception and skippers briefing at the Fastnet Marine & Outdoor Education Centre on Monday August 5th with the first “Round the Islands” race starting at 12.30pm on Tuesday 6th.

The series finishes Friday 9th with the final race from Schull to the Fastnet Rock and back to Schull. This is followed by the overall presentation of prizes, closing ceremony and live entertainment on Schull Main Street in the evening. The festival features nightly fun and live entertainment around the village for both adults and the younger generation. There are plenty of activities during the day for the non-sailors to ensure everybody has a thoroughly enjoyable week.

Cork Dry Gin Calves Week would not be possible without the support of our Title Sponsor Cork Dry Gin and our Festival Associates A&L Castors, Land Rover and Aseco.
