Fermoy Regatta 2010

Great wins at Fermoy Regatta 2010 for Killorglin RC. The day started off wet and windy, but soon brighten up as the medals started coming in. Fermoy Regatta was a 500m sprint regatta, so racing was fast and furious. After many heats and semi finals, first win of the day went to the Womens Junior 14 Quad (WJ14 4x+) of Michelle Moriarty, Zoe Hyde, Caoimhe Purcell and Molly O’Sullivan coxed by Katie Fay. Shortly after Monika Dukarska scored a gold in the Women’s Senior Single Scull (WS 1x) beating A.O’Sullivan from University of Limerick by 3 boat lengths. Next up was the Women’s Novice Double Scull (WN2x) of Aileen Crowley and Meabh O’Sullivan winning comfortably over Cork and Carlow crews. Our next final was Women’s Junior 15 Quad (WJ15 4x+) of Meabh O’Sullivan, Maeve McGillycuddy, Zoe Hyde and Tara Lynch coxed by Katie Fay winning by ½of a boat length over Fermoy the home crew and Cork BC. Tara Lynch and Zoe Hyde a new Junior 14 Double Scull (WJ14 2x) combination won against the favourites – Colaiste Chiarain of Limerick what was a spectacular race. Aileen Crowley keeping up to last week’s performance won the Women’s Junior 16 Single Scull (WJ16 1x) comfortably. In the Women’s Junior 14 Single Sculls (WJ 14 1x) we had two scullers – Molly O’Sullivan and Zoe Hyde. It was Molly’s debut in the Single Scull just losing out by two feet to Fermoy Sculler. Zoe went as far as the final but was piped by more experience sculler on the line. The final race of the day was the Women’s Junior 15 Double Scull (WJ 15 2x) the experienced crew of Maeve McGillycuddy and Meabh O’Sullivan won their final comfortably. Well done to all the crews and supporters. It was a very enjoyable day for all. Next event: Irish Rowing Championships 16/17 July 2010.
