The 2018 Intervarsity team racing championships started yesterday at Kilrush Marina on the Shannon Estuary in County Clare. The event organisers for this year's event are NUIG Galway and UCC Sailing Team.

Conditions on day one were ideal for team racing with over twenty teams taking part representing colleges across Ireland, Northern Ireland and international teams from Strathclyde University in Scotland.

It was a busy day for the five umpires on the water and race organisers completed 87 races. The 180 students transferring on & off the water were cheered on by lots of local supporters.

Entertainment off the water for students taking a break between races included bouncy castles, sumo wrestling & a BBQ.
