A Message from the Captain of New Ross Boat Club:

It is with much disappointment that we have reached a decision to CANCEL this year’s Barrow Challenge due to unfavourable weather conditions predicted for Saturday. The safety of crews and support volunteers is paramount.

To all of you who hoped to row this year, we are so sorry for the anticlimax after all your training. We were really looking forward to seeing old friends and making some new. Thanks to all of you for your continued support of the Barrow Challenge. We look forward to seeing you in the near future.


David Nolan,


New Ross Boat Club
