Dragon boats, stand up paddle–boarders, coastal rowing skiffs and many more boat types besides came to the line for Cork Harbour Festival's Ocean to City Race and Afloat.ie's Bob Bateman captured the action from the quayside. 

An Rás Mor, now in its 14th year, received a record-breaking entry! Over 200 boats and 600 participants from Ireland, U.S, Holland, Germany, Spain and Great Britain, are set to descend on Cork City for Ireland’s premier rowing race on Saturday 2 June.

Thankfully, all went off well and there was a great race unlike 2017 when, for the first time in its history the race fell to severe weather.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
