Carrick-on-Shannon Rowing Regatta & Waterways Ireland Mooring Closure

#The Carrick-on-Shannon Rowing Regatta will be held on Sunday 3 August 2014 on a 400 metres stretch of water immediately south of the town bridge commencing at 08:00hr and finishing at approx. 18.00hr. Craft wishing to make a through passage will be facilitated every 2 hrs approximately, during the course of the regatta. Mooring restrictions will apply in Carrick-on-Shannon to facilitate the Regatta.

Hundreds of spectators are expected at the event, one of the final events of the season, which is supported by Waterways Ireland through its sponsorship programme.

In the interest of marine safety and to facilitate the laying of the competition course access to the floating moorings will be restricted in the run-up to and during the event itself. Only vessels of an overall length of 22ft. /6.8m or less will be permitted on the floating jetties from Fri 1 to Sunday 3 August. Vessels berthed from Friday 1st 16.00hr will be required to remain in place until racing finishes at approx 18.00hr on Sunday 3 August.

The floating jetties will be closed off on 16.00hr Friday and approx 18.00hr Sunday and manoeuvring room will be severely restricted due to the proximity of the course. As a result no vessels should approach the jetties between these times. Access to the floating jetties will be monitored from Monday 28 July.
Masters are advised to proceed at slow speed and with due caution and to take note of advice from course marshals when passing through the area. Waterways Ireland takes this opportunity to thank its customers for their co-operation with these arrangements.
Further information can be had by contacting Waterways Ireland Inspectorate +353 (0)87 985 2324 or Operations Division North Shannon +353 (0)71 96 50787.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
