A huge WELCOME to our incoming Commodore, Donal McCormack. Donal has been involved in Foynes Yacht Club from a young age and is well known in the sailing community. We wish him well in his new position as Commodore and look forward to working with him in the future. Outgoing Commodore James welcomes Incoming Commodore Donal McCormack.
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…
Congratulations to Trevor Browne who was presented with Honorary Membership of Foynes Yacht Club at the Niaron Munster Mermaid Championships recently. This was presented to Trevor for his lifelong service to Foynes Yacht Club. Trevor was one of the very first Mermaid sailors in Foynes.
