Skibbereen Regatta Apr 2024

Waterford Boat Club took part in our first regatta of 2024 with a trip to Skibbereen Regatta which was held at the National Rowing Center in farran Woods in Co Cork. This event takes place over 2 days. As this was a Grand League event all competitions for J16 and upwards would be held over the full 2K distance. For the J14 and J15 groups the race would be held over a 1K course.

The club would be well represented over the weekend with XX crews entered for racing.
