Reduce speed for head of river race

5th March 2009

Boaters are advised by Waterways Ireland that the Portora Boat Club Erne Head of River Race will take place on Sat 7 Mar 2009 from 10.00 hrs to 16.00 hrs. The course starts at Culkey Jetty, upstream of the Killyhevlin Hotel and finishes at Portora Boat Club House downstream of the Round "O". Masters of vessels are requested to proceed at slow speed and with minimum wash when passing this stretch of the navigation and to heed any advice or instructions issued by the race officials. Waterways Ireland thanks its customers for their cooperation in this matter. Team
