Cork Harbour Open Day Due to Showcase Cork Harbour

Cork Harbour Open Day Due to Showcase Cork Harbour

Tuesday 24 August 2010

Cork Harbour Open Day will take place on Saturday 4th September 2010 and already there are a number of free events planned to take place around the harbour.

To name but a few, Cork City will host the World Rescue Challenge on the Port of Cork’s North Custom House Quay, Cobh will host the start of the annual Cobh to Blackrock Sailing race, while in Crosshaven there will be farmers markets, rowing championships and the RNLI Station will be open to the public.

It is expected that many more events will be announced in the coming days. For a full programme please visit www.corkharbour.ie

Aimed at embracing what Cork Harbour has to offer, the Cork Harbour Open Day aims to raise awareness of the different activities available for people in the harbour both on and off the water.

The idea for a Harbour Open Day emerged from discussions between various stakeholders involved in the development and implementation of the Integrated Strategy for the Harbour. A group comprising representatives from UCC, City and County Councils and the Port of Cork set about working together to engage users of the Harbour and to organise the Open Day.

Cork Harbour is the second largest natural harbour in the world, next to Sydney Harbour, offering beautiful locations for enjoying the outdoors, dramatic coastlines, and excellent leisure facilities.
