Lagan Head organisers have cut back its schedule for Saturday in Belfast because of the weather, and the rowing event may yet have to be cancelled. They stated that safety was paramount.
“The Met Office has issued a Yellow Wind warning for 12 midday Saturday into Sunday. With this in mind, it is no longer possible to race during this time. A decision has been made to cancel Race 1 outright. If the weather forecast doesn’t deteriorate for Saturday morning then there MAY be an opportunity to hold RACE 2 (bigger boats) during Saturday am at about 10.30 am on a shortened course.”
