The 2019 Rose Bowl will be held on August 24th and 25th
History of the Rose Bowl
The Rose Bowl was first commissioned in 1986 by Kieran O’Donoghue (the owner of the Glandore Inn at that time). It is awarded to the overall winner of a six race series held on consecutive days over a weekend usually in late August or early September. Races normally take place outside the harbour.
The Rose Bowl is one of the premier trophies of the sailing calendar and in recent years it has attracted visiting boats from Kinsale and Dublin and this year, we hope to see some overseas visitors. The Glandore Inn Rose Bowl for Dragons and Squibs 2018 will be held over the weekend of 25/26 August.
