Sport

The village is famous for its Royal Cork Yacht Club which has had its headquarters in the town since 1966. The club was established at the Cove of Cork (now Cobh) in 1720 and holds the title of the oldest in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. In 1966 the RCYC merged with the Royal Munster Yacht Club and made the Royal Munster's club house its new headquarters. The biannual Regatta of Cork Week (formerly Ford Cork Week due to the sponsorship of the Ford Motor Company) is one of the most famous in the world, drawing huge crowds of competitors and spectators. During the event the Gardai enforce strict traffic controls to avoid total gridlock.

Crosshaven also has an internationally successful indoor soccer team, which currently holds the Isola Design Cup. This years tournament takes place in London on August 26th, where the team hope to retain their title. The Crosshaven International Indoor Soccer team easily defended their title in August 2006, and are expecting another easy victory when the London teams return to Ireland in April 2007. The Londoners are believed to be frantically recruiting new talent, in an attempt to be more competitive.
