Cork Boat Club is funded by membership subscriptions, corporate sponsorships and is also dependant on a number of fundraising activities. If you or you company would like to help in supporting our fundraising efforts please read on.
One of the best supported events of the year is the annual race night. There is a race card comprising of 10 races with 10 horses in each race. You can support this event by buying a horse or sponsoring a race. If you buy a horse you can choose a name for the horse and prizes will be given to 1st, 2nd & 3rd place horse owners. If you sponsor a race the name of your company will be printed in the program. On the race night you may place a bet on each race or buy a horse in the last race.To buy a horse or sponsor a race please contact Denis MacSweeny on 021 4294479.
The 2004 race night was in Blackrock Hurling Club on Friday 14th May. It was a very successful event and well attended by the younger members. The auction race was won by the syndicate of Paul Farrelly and Mark Wickham.
