Following the recent announcement of the Volvo Cork Week ‘Super Early Bird’ competition winners who won back their full entry fee for the regatta, event organisers have announced a new deal for those who sign up before 31 March, writes Trish Whelan.
A lucky 5 per cent of entries received over the next eight weeks will receive a crew gear pack which contains 10 branded Helly Hansen Crew tops personalised with the boat name, and one Skipper’s branded Helly Hansen Regatta jacket, also personalised with the boat name.
With some 45 entries before the end of December, and big international interest, indicators show that Volvo Cork Week is shaping up to be the biggest yet with over 50 per cent of total entries for the last regatta already registered, six months in advance of the event itself.
With Volvo Cork Week’s new format, and again teaming up with Ireland’s principal sponsor of sailing events Volvo Car Ireland, and local dealership Johnson and Perrott at Mahon Point, the organising committee are focusing on attracting more sailors from more areas of sailing and from a more diverse demographic. This, accompanied by six nights of world-class entertainment, they believe will make for a world-class event in 2018.
