#Rowing: Here is the 2017 Calendar for Irish Rowers. The year ahead is a bumper one. In February, the Fisa Extraordinary Congress in Tokyo will be the focus of intense interest, as a decision will be made on the boats which can compete at the Olympic Games. Lightweight athletes in Ireland and other countries will watch this closely. The international season will be a very long one as the World Championships will be held very late (September/October) in Florida in the United States. The domestic regatta season starts with Neptune Regatta on April 1st and the high point is the Irish Championships, which run from July 14th to July 16th. Queen’s University have decided to abandon plans to hold their regatta, which was scheduled for May 6th.
Our good wishes to all involved in rowing this year, whether behind the scenes or on the water.

For 2015 there is a great selection and variety, including action from the Volvo Ocean Race, the RC44 fleet in Lanzarote, Oman Sail at 40 knots and a great picture of the Round The Island Race fleet, plus other action and art from the international racing circuit.

First up is the SB20 Annual Dinner on Friday 7 March at the Royal St George in Dun Laoghaire. This year's dinner will be a less formal affair (dress smart casual) and held in the club room with own bar.
Spaces will be limited so early booking is strongly advised to avoid disappointment. Prices are not yet finalised but expected to be around €40 per head. Call the RStGYC office to book your place at 01 280 1811.
The following month, on Saturday 5 April, sees the Howth Spring Warmer hosted by Howth Yacht Club - a great way to dust off the cobwebs over two days of guaranteed big wind and big wave sailing off Ireland's Eye. More will be revealed on the HYC website in due course.
And the first DBSC Sunday is scheduled for Sunday 27 April with a fantastic line-up this year, and plans to once more to get 10 DBSC Sundays' racing in.
A more complete calendar of events for SB20s in 2014 can be downloaded below.
