For over a decade, the biennial Cork Race was an important occasion in the life of MYC.
About 20 boats used to come down from up-country to compete. The start was off Black Rock and the finish was self-timed at the entrance to Cork Harbour. In 2005 it was awarded to the winner of Skinners Brewery Pursuit Series and in 2014 the Stannard Trophy became the first prize for the 2nd Pursuit Series (Page 19).
