Skibbereen Regatta Rescheduled to Create Bumper Rowing Weekend

27th May 2013
Skibbereen Regatta Rescheduled to Create Bumper Rowing Weekend

# ROWING: Skibbereen Regatta was today given a new posting of Sunday, June 30th, opening up the prospect of a bumper weekend of rowing at the National Rowing Centre in Cork. Skibbereen Regatta was originally to open the eFlow Grand League Series but had to be postponed because of poor weather. It will now end the series, directly following Cork Regatta on the Saturday. The Irish Schools’ Regatta, also rescheduled, will begin three days of action at the NRC on Friday, June 28th.

The new date for Skibbereen became available because Fermoy Regatta cancelled, citing flood relief works on the traditional course.

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.
