The entry fee for the upcoming 5o5 World Championship to be held in Cork from 3rd to 13th August 2022 will increase as of 18th April 2022.

Boats are expected from around the world for the much anticipated world championship which will be the first since the Covid 19 pandemic wreaked havoc.

The event will be held out of Crosshaven, a small seaside town with a number of bars, restaurants, beaches and walks nearby. It is a 25 minute drive to Cork City where there is much to see. As a destination, this is a great event to bring friends and family to and experience the famous Irish hospitality.

The host club is Royal Cork Yacht Club (RCYC), situated in the town of Crosshaven which lies at the entrance to Cork Harbour, one of the worlds largest natural harbours in Ireland. The 'RCYC' is the oldest yacht club in the world, dating back to 1720. Today, the RCYC continues to be a hub of activity across all forms of sailing including dinghy racing, keelboat racing and cruising. In 2020, the RCYC was named Irish Yacht Club of the year

  • The RCYC has a strong history and record when it comes to hosting dinghy events having previously hosted the Enterprise Worlds, 505 Worlds, Laser Standard & Masters Worlds with many other prestigious keelboat events such as Cork Week and ISAF match racing events.

    This is a club run by the sailors, for the sailors.
