Yacht clubs around the world encouraged to go green for Crosshaven
Yacht clubs around the world have been encouraged to green on St. Patricks Day to celebrate the Tricentenary of the Royal Yacht Club in Crosshaven.
The world's oldest yacht club turns 300 this year and a number of events have been lined up to celebrate a pioneering group in world water sports.
Green lights are a tradition across the world for St. Patricks Day, with landmarks such as the Empire State Building and the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio turned green on the big day.
The Tricentenary events will bring sailing communities from across the world to Crosshaven this year, with teams from Europe and as far as Australia, Hong Kong and San Francisco all set to attend the upcoming events.
One of these events will be the International Power Boat Festival which will be held at the Royal Cork Yacht Club from the 11th to the 12th of July.
