Our Carrick course provides some brilliant opportunities for spectators to get up close and personal with the races. The Carrick Boardwalk provides a magnificent view of the start while the Quays offer perfect views of the finish line. Our clubhouse nearby will be serving all manner of breakfast, lunches and snacks all day to keep rowers, coaches and supporters fully fueled for the days exertions.
