We would like to say a huge congratulations to all the rowers who competed in the ECBSC in San Sebastian this week. It was three days of brilliant racing from all the Irish crews. We are delighted as well that we are returning home with our first ever European Coastal Rowing bronze medal in the CCMix2x. A huge well done and thank you to the team Manager Margaurite Deasy and all of the boat handlers and helpers who travelled over to support the team.
It was another very exciting day of racing at the beach sprints today. Kealan Mannix had an amazing QF race with a photo finish ending that lead him into the semi-finals against a very strong Lithuanian competitor who beat him in the semi-finals and went on to win gold in the event.
Keep an eye on our social media for photos coming from today!
