The 2018 Grand League Series consisted of the Dublin Metropolitan Regatta (26th May, Blessington) and Cork Regatta (23rd & 24th June, National Rowing Centre). Unfortunately, the 2018 Skibbereen Regatta, which was scheduled for 14th & 15th April and is normally the first of the three Grand League events, was cancelled due to unfavourable weather conditions.
The Grand League Regatta Series was established by Rowing Ireland in 2010, and has since contributed to the development of numerous athletes at both junior and senior level. The Series provides rowers of all levels with the opportunity to perform and develop their racing prowess in a fair and competitive environment. Today, it’s a key part of the Irish rowing calendar and the premier domestic rowing league in Ireland.
