Cork Takes On Copenhagen in New Rowing Regatta

4th July 2014
Cork Takes On Copenhagen in New Rowing Regatta

#ROWING: Cork will stage a regatta tomorrow (Saturday) in which young local rowers will take on visiting crews from Copenhagen. About  60 rowers from Cork Boat Club, Lee Rowing Club, Shandon Boat Club and Presentation College Rowing Club will represent Cork rowing, while an estimated 20 Copenhagen rowers from three Copenhagen rowing clubs will compete. The Deputy Lord Mayor will officiate at a welcome reception for them, their coaches and parents today.

The Copenhagen crews in each race are made up of a selection of rowers from the three Copenhagen clubs. They will race against crews from the individual Cork clubs except in the eights races where the Cork crews will also be made up of a selection of rowers from the Cork clubs - four clubs in the case of the girls crews and three clubs in the case of the boys crews (PBC rowing club having male only members).

The regatta is being sponsored by the Port of Cork Authority and Maersk Shipping Line and the crews in the eights races will compete for the Port of Cork- Maersk Trophies.

This is an inaurgural event and it is intended that the event will be held in Cork and Copenhagen in alternate years.

The regatta will consist of the following races:

Boys Junior 15 Sculls

Boys Junior 16 Sculls

Boys Junior 16 Double Sculls

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.
