Ireland's canoeists distinguished themselves at the ICF Canoe Marathon World Championships in Singapore last weekend, as The Irish Times reports.
In the women's K1 event, Jenny Egan placed eighth out of 25 entrants.
Egan kept pace with eventual winner Renata Csay of Hungary until one-third of the way into the 28.5km race.
But temperatures in the 30s and 80% humidity took their toll on the Salmon Leap paddler and her challenged faded instantly.
Meanwhile, her brother Peter Egan placed 11th in the men's K2 with partner Neil Fleming, missing out on a better place due to Egan's cramping before the end.

Bangor Town Regatta 2021

It’s expected that the fleet will number upwards of 60 with several hundred crew and supporting visitors for the 2021 Regatta.

Among the classes expected are IRC, Sigma 33, RS Elite, and day boats such as Waverleys and Fairies.

The Regatta Chairman is Gavin Watson and Royal Ulster Yacht Club is the organising club for what is Northern Ireland's biggest inshore yacht racing event.

Feeder races from Dun Laoghaire and Scotland are planned.

The Bangor Town Regatta fleet will race out of the Bangor Marina, on what is Belfast Lough’s enviable area of virtually tide and hazard free waters.

Two round-the-buoys courses within a manageable distance from the marina will provide testing but enjoyable racing and in addition, coastal races every day will give those who prefer
somewhat more leisurely competition, the opportunity to use the whole of the Lough.

Racing will be in the capable hands of International Race Officer and National Judge, local man Robin Gray.

The Race Office will be located at the Marina close to where the après sailing will be well catered for.

At A Glance - Bangor Town Regatta 2022

Belfast Lough's Bangor Town Regatta runs from Thursday 23rd to Sunday 26th June 2022
