The Irish Rowing Championships are the highlight of the domestic rowing season, taking place 20th-22nd of August 2021. This event, which is volunteer driven, requires a large number of volunteers to deliver the high quality event that our athletes deserve. This year in particular, we require additional help from our clubs as many of our traditional helps are unavailable for various reasons. Please consider supporting Rowing Ireland by volunteering.

Launch Drivers Required

Duties – The crews are ready for The Championships at the National Rowing Centre but they can’t hit the water until our team of launch drivers are in place. To ensure safety, fair racing and marshalling we need experienced launch drivers who are happy to put themselves into this high-octane racing environment:

Shifts – There are morning and afternoon shifts Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Apply – if you wish to volunteer or require any additional details, please contact the championship committee at

These are unpaid volunteer positions but each volunteer will be provided with meals throughout the event and will also receive a souvenir polo-shirt.
