This year the Schools Regatta will be held on Sunday 26th April, following the Limerick Regatta on Saturday. The Schools Regatta was first run in O’Briensbridge in 2006 as part of the University Championships. Eleven crews from five schools battled for honours in two double sculls events. The following year additional events were added and the event started to grow. Given that the University Championships always took precedence at the combined event, there was a limit on the size of the Schools Regatta. This ceased to be the case when Limerick Regatta agreed to run the event in 2014 on a stand-alone basis: there was an entry of just over 300 crews from 45 schools. This year there are 407 entries from 71 schools. Best of luck to all involved.
It is asked that the club secretary would advise/ council the person/ persons dealing with the schools entries & declarations about the procedures in place how to do so.
Teachers/ parents may not be familiar with the process.
