Daragh Connolly of the RCYC was confirmed as the incoming commodore for a two-year period and laid out a proposed framework of activities, subject to government regulations, that included races to Dunmore East, Glandore and Schull, together with further promotion of the combined Cork Harbour combined leagues, and an online series to encourage newcomers to the offshore sailing scene.

The remainder of the executive committee was confirmed, with David Cullinane of Kinsale filling the Vice Commodore role, while Chris Granby of Monkstown takes over as Sailing Secretary and Michael Murphy of Schull continues as Financial Officer.

It is intended to co-opt additional representatives from the remaining South Coast Clubs.
