Our congratulations to Karen Wilkins, from Llanion rowing club in Wales, who won a fine mixed case of wine from ourselves. Mike joined Siubhan McDevitt from Oceantocity in Meitheal Mara to draw out the lucky entrant. Karen will have something to help take away the pain of the race.
The Ocean to City race takes place on the June bank holiday weekend, Saturday 30th May, in Cork harbour. The race, now in its fifth year, starts in Crosshaven before proceeding out to Roches point where the rowers turn and race for the city via Cobh, Monkstown and to the finish line at Lapps Quay in the heart of Cork city.
The weather forecast is looking good for the weekend. I hope I don’t jinx it by saying “bring sunblock!”. Over 100 boats have entered (with about 350 crew), including entries from the USA, Germany, Wales and across Ireland.
Hopefully see you there, and good luck to all those taking part…
