Big Entry for Lough Rynn Regatta

9th May 2017
Big Entry for Lough Rynn Regatta

#Rowing: The second annual Lough Rynn Regatta will be held on the lake (Lough Rinn) near Mohill, Co. Leitrim on Saturday. The event is hosted by the Connacht Branch of Rowing Ireland.

The 2,000 metre course has eight lanes and is at top class facility. It was developed by Leitrim County Council. It is very accessible from the North, South and East of Ireland. It has a 1,000 metre area above the start where crews can warm up and a north-south orientation, which should minimise the effect of windy conditions. 

This year’s entry is double that of last year: over 1700 competitors from 40 clubs will take to the water between 8am to 6pm in 107 races.

Free parking will be available at the Lough Rynn Hotel Golf Course Site. The carpark is 1.2km away from the enclosure and two shuttle buses will be provided throughout the day free of charge.

Members of the general public who wish to view this event are very welcome, entrance is free of charge.

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.
