Skibbereen Widen Gap at top of Grand League

25th June 2010
Skibbereen Widen Gap at top of Grand League

Skibbereen Rowing Club have maintained their dominance at the top of the Rowing Ireland Grand League following the Metro regatta, the fourth in the six series league. They have now increased their lead over nearest rivals, Dublin club, Neptune by 128 points.

The leading clubs after the fourth regatta are: Skibbereen 573, Neptune 445, St. Michael’s 373, Commercial 358, UCD 262

Skibbereen’s lead is now significant and it will be difficult for Neptune to topple them at this stage.  However St..Michael’s, Commercial and UCD will still be fighting it out for the coveted third spot.

St Michaels, Limerick lead the men's senior category on 195 points, with Neptune overtaking Commercial on 142 and UCD remaining in third on 121 points.  UCD maintain their lead 141 points in the women’s senior category despite their absence at Metro with Dublin University overtaking NUIG for a second placing with the Galway club third on 101.75 points.

Skibbereen RC remain top of the junior men category on 216 with Neptune overtaking St. Joseph’s, Galway (The Bish)  in second on 120 with Lee Rowing Club in third on 101.

Skibbereen and St. Michael’s topping the junior women on 125 and 80 points respectively.

The Grand League takes a break now until August to make way for the Irish Rowing Championships which take place on Saturday 16th July.  The league will resume with the Limerick and Monkstown regattas in August.
