The Rowing Ireland 1K Classic organising committee has met this afternoon and feel that following consultation with Met Eireann that the forecast is not favourable for Saturday 8th July 2023. The forecast suggests high south westerly winds with strong gusts up to 50 KM per hour during the day which would make the conditions unsafe for crews to take to the water.
Sunday is still looking like an option and the committee is trying everything to make this happen for such an important part of our membership. The committee will meet tomorrow to assess the updated weather forecast for Sunday in an effort to reschedule. In the interim we will also talk to clubs to also get their perspective.
As soon as we can make a decision we will update all our clubs and entries to this incredible event. We expect to update clubs at approximately 1pm tomorrow.
