Round Cobh Island Windsurfing Race Sat May 10 2014

When windsurfing came to Ireland in the late 1970's it was a new from of fun. It wasn't long before there were pockets of windsurfing enthusiasts (or boardsailors) all over Ireland. Everybody who goes afloat has a competitive streak and it was with that in mind that Eddie English and Cork Boardsailing Club (Commodore Peter Crowley) organised theCork Harbour Open Boardsailing Championships on the October Bank Holiday in 1981.

In 1982 the Irish Windsurfer Class had their National Championships in Cobh and this again was a fantastic success. Obviously with all this windsurfing action on the Harbour it sparked a huge interest in Cobh - with lots of eager customers taking windsurf lessons from Eddie English and his team at SailCork (then called International Sailing Centre). It was only a matter of time before a local club was founded and in October 1982 the Buccaneer Boardsailors Cobh (BBC) began a programme of racing 52 weeks of the year. The 1982 Cork Harbour Championships was a huge success with 123 entrants! - the late and great Rob James was the overall winner. (Gerry Robinson was winner of the windsurfer Class) Cobh needed another race - so the idea of a marathon race was mooted - what would the course be - around the Great Island of Course!!
