June Bank holiday weekend – Rowing Festival

Don’t miss a great spectacle of rowing on the River Laune in Killorglin on the 4th, 5th and 6th of June.

Killorglin Rowing Club is pleased to host the first ever, Kerry Schools Coastal Rowing Championships on the 4th of June with Schools all over Kerry competing in the One-Design coastal boats. It is the first event of its kind organised in Ireland, with coastal rowers representing their prospective schools. With coastal rowing activity on a rise and some 27 secondary schools in Kerry, it is an event not to be missed! Medals will be awarded to the winners of each event with points awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each race category. The school with the greatest amount of points will win the 2016 Kerry Schools Coastal Rowing perpetual trophy.  The events on offer include under 14, 16, 18 and 23 boys, girls and mixed crews. The championships will kick off at 3:30pm.

We will also run the annual Killorglin Coastal Rowing Regatta in conjunction with the KFest on the 5th and 6th of June. The Killorglin Coastal Regatta is open to all coastal rowing clubs in Kerry with medals awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. The events range from under 12 to senior and veteran categories. Racing will start at 4pm on the 5th and 5pm on the 6th of June.

Killorglin Rowing Club is delighted to coincide the rowing festival with the KFest again this year and run the first even Kerry Schools Coastal Rowing Championships.
