2019 World Forum in Cork, Ireland Announced 
In September 2019, the Royal Cork Yacht Club will be on the cusp of celebrating the tricentenary of its establishment and is proud to hold the title of the oldest yacht club in the world. The Club has maintained a strong sailing tradition over the centuries and is still as strong and active today as it was when it was founded almost three hundred years ago. The Flag Officers and members are honoured and privileged to host the ICOYC World Commodores’ Forum which will be held from Tuesday 24th to Friday 27th September, 2019 in Cork and all delegates can be assured of a warm welcome. The venue for accommodation for the Forum is due to be finalised within the next month and we will inform all member clubs as soon as this has been confirmed. Cork Harbour, where the Club is located, is considered to be the second largest natural harbour in the world after Sydney and is steeped in maritime tradition. Many physical connections to the era when the Royal Cork Yacht Club was founded in 1720 still exist to this day and both the Forum and social programs alike will afford delegates and their partner’s opportunity to visit some of the iconic symbols of our heritage and immerse themselves in what has become known as Cork – Ireland’s maritime paradise. We look forward to welcoming ICOYC delegates, and their partners / families from across the globe in September 2019 where we will endeavour to ensure that your visit to Cork will be a memorable one!
