Farewell to Commodore James McCormack

Club Announcements
Last Friday saw our Commodore of 5 years, James McCormack, stepping down.  We are so grateful to James for all his hard work and leadership over the last 5 very productive years and for getting Foynes Yacht Club's name out there not only nationally but worldwide.  James started sailing out of Foynes with the late Dick Nash from Newcastle West and PJ Scanlon from Shanagolden and credits his love of sailing to these people and to his late father Joe.  He also had great admiration for the late David Floyd who was a great mentor and who encouraged him to get involved in Foynes Yacht Club all those years ago.   We would like to take this opportunity to CONGRATULATE James on a job well done and wish him well in the future…
