Dalkey Rowing Club (DRC) hosts its first regatta on Saturday (June 17th) since 2019 due to the pandemic and bad weather last year. 

The coastal rowers are marking their 90th year, so there's an added buzz and excitement in the air and on the water!

The racing is based at Otranto Park in Sandycove Park, with racing in Scotsman's Bay.

The first race is at 9.00 am sharp (cox meeting at 8.30 am). The novice men go first, and the regatta schedule is below.

Dalkey Rowing Club will host a blessing of its new boat, ‘Bláth na Farraige’, on Saturday, 1 April, at 3 pm at The Club Pub in Dalkey Village, Co. Dublin.

The new wooden clinker hull for the coastal rowing club on Dublin Bay was built by W.C. Hunkin and Sons boat builders with support from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports and Media through the Capital Sports programme.

There was disappointment for Irish coastal rowing fans at the weekend when Dalkey Rowing Club cancelled its 90th-anniversary Regatta on Dublin Bay due to an adverse weather forecast. 

Unfortunately, the forecast for Sunday worsened and organisers deemed it unsafe to stage the event despite a strong entry, a full card and having laid the course in Scotsman's Bay in the south of the Bay for the two-day event.

"In a statement on social media, the club said: "The tides in Scotsman’s Bay don’t allow a full days card (when they’re low they’re low) which is why it [the regatta] was over two days. And we can’t then run only half a card, it had to be all races or none. It’s the winds that are the issue and we had to be safe for everyone’s sake".
