Congratulations to Monika Dukarska on winning the offshore beach sprints trial.
As Monika retained her title as the fastest offshore woman sculler in Ireland she will be representing Ireland at the first ever Beach Games (that involved rowing) in Bali, Indonesia from the 5th-12th of August 2023.
Aoibhe Horan raced hard from start to finish placing 3rd overall. Aoibhe is relatively new to the beach sprints event but was apart of the winning WC4x+ at last years Offshore Championships and hopes to use this experience to her advantage during the season.
This weekend a select group of athletes traveled to Ghent International Regatta in Belgium for the first time in our history. We performed well, learned lots and had a great time representing Killorglin in Belgium against the top crews across the world.
Sundays results as follows:
6th/10 crews WU17 4x of Belle O’Shea, Sadhbh O’Sullivan, Fia O’Gorman and Ava O’Sullivan
9th/27 crews MU19 1x of Kieran McHugh
9th/30 crews WU17 2x of Sadhbh O’Sullivan and Belle O’Shea
10th/26 crews WU19 1x of Aoibhe Horan

A big thanks to Cork Boat Club for their hospitality throughout the weekend and for carrying our boats safely across countries.
Last but not least, we would like to thank sincerely Cahillane’s Butchers (Mill Road, Killorglin) for facilitating transportation of boats & supporting us on several occasions this season and ensuring we can get our boats to venues and compete. It is greatly appreciated.
Limerick Regatta is not a event that will be forgotten anytime soon! Unfortunately there was torrential rain for the majority of the day but nonetheless our Killorglin athletes raced hard putting in solid performances.
