National Championship 2019 – Bringing our total to 49

The 2019 National Rowing Championships were held at the National Rowing Centre in Inniscarra over 3 days from the 12th to 14th July. The club had a very successful weekend winning 3 national championships bringing the total for the club to 49 which maintains our position in the top 10 of total championship wins of Irish rowing clubs. The club also had 3 wins in non-championship events (2 of these in composite crews). For a number of our junior boys and girls it was their first time competing at the national championships so the experience should be of great benefit to them for next season and beyond.

The following is a list of the results events the club achieved a top 3 placing:

Championship Events:

· Mens Intermediate 4+ #1st place
· Mens Intermediate 8+ #1st place

· Mens Masters 1X #2nd place
· Mens Junior 1X #3rd place in Final 5
· Womens Junior 15 8+ #3rd place in Final 1

Thanks to all the athletes, coaches, parents and supporters that made the weekend another memorable national championships for the club. Behind the scenes there were many logistical tasks required such as painting oars, fettling boats, towing trailers and pitching tents to name a few. All this would not be possible without the help and support of many club members. Thanks also to those club members that volunteered to help run the event with the organising committee.
