The 2017 regatta season continues this coming weekend with Trinity Regatta taking place in Islandbridge, Dublin on Saturday 15th April.
2016 was the 150th anniversary of the regatta, which has been held annually since as far back as 1836, the only exceptions being a few years during World War 1. Events are held over a two-lane, 1800 metre course, with a shortened course for juniors, and side-by-side racing provides quality entertainment throughout the day each year. Crews from all over Ireland and the UK compete, over 180 this year, with post-racing celebrations usually lasting into the early hours.
Racing is scheduled to kick off at 7:30am and the jam-packed timetable will run until 6:00pm that evening, rounded off with the “Competitors’ Supper” in the Long Room of the Trinity boathouse.
