#rs – This coming weekend will see the next series of racing for the RS fleets in Ireland, with the annual Sprint event. This event was previously a season closer in Dun Laoghaire Harbour, now moves to this earlier slot, and is kindly being hosted by Greystones SC.
This will be seen by many as a great opportunity to get in some top level boat-handling and starting practice in advance of the Irish Nationals in July. With 10-14 short sharp races and no discards any mistakes however minor will be costly. This year's Sprint event will also include the RS Fevas for the first time.
In marked contrast to the Sprints, indeed at the opposite end of the spectrum, the Northern contingent will be engaging in an altogether different form of racing, the famous Coleraine 24 hour race on the Bann River. Several RS400 teams are entered, and run in shifts through the night, which will hopefully only last 3 hours at this time of the year.
Coleraine Marina complex enjoys a superb location in sheltered waters just one mile north of the town of Coleraine and four and a half miles south of the River Bann Estuary and the open sea. Besides accomodating vessels up to 18m LOA, the modern marina with 105 berths offers hard standing, fuel, a chandlery and shower facilities.
Among one of the oldest known settlements in Ireland, Coleraine is renowned for its linen, whiskey and salmon. Its thriving commercial centre includes numerous shops, a four-screen cinema and a state-of-the-art leisure complex.

#CANOEING - The Coleraine Times reports that a fleet of canoes will 'Paddle the Bann' in a two-day charity challenge from 26-27 May.
Participants will be canoeing and camping on the River Bann some 60km downstream as far as Coleraine in aid of the Ulster Cancer Foundation, which supports local cancer patients and their families.
Sarah Atcheson from the charity said: “This is a unique and wonderful way to experience beautiful Irish countryside and meet new people, while raising funds for local people who have been affected by cancer.
“No previous canoeing experience is necessary as training will be provided and participants will be under the supervision of qualified staff at all times."
Registration is £25 - which covers tents, camping equipment and canoe usage - and all those taking part are asked to raise a minimum of £225 in sponsorship. Participants will be paddling in two-man Canadian canoes, but it's not required to register as a team.
