This weekend, the 2017 Lough Rynn Regatta will take place on Saturday 13th May at Lough Rynn, Mohill, Co. Leitrim, hosted by the Connacht Branch of Rowing Ireland. The regatta is a full-status event and will take place on the 8 lane, 2,000 metre professionally-laid course, which was developed in 2014/2015.
The course had its inaugural regatta in 2016, and the Regatta Committee are looking forward to once again welcoming competitors to what promises to be a great day’s racing on the top-class regatta course. It has a number of major advantages, including easy accessibility from the North, South and East of Ireland, a 1,000 metre area at one end of the course where crews can warm up and cool down, and a north-south orientation, which means the course would rarely be adversely affected by windy conditions.
Over 500 crews from 40 clubs around the country will be competing, with races running from 8am-6pm.
The very best of luck to all athletes, coaches, organisers and volunteers on the day.
