Limerick Boat Club participated/competed last Saturday the 18th at the Phoenix at home regatta at Islandbridge, Dublin.
Phoenix Rowing Club is a new recreational club based at Islandbridge between Garda & Neptune club houses. They are seven years in existence & this is the seventh year of their regatta.
It was a 500 meter regatta rowing the opposite way to normal, ie. from Trinity to Garda.
There were eight clubs there on the day, Tralee, Graiguenamanagh, Athlone, Athy, to name but a few. Tribesmen & Carlow were late scratches.
Limerick Boat Club had twelve people attending on the day of the regatta, generally all new recreational rowers.
We had entries in women’s novice & club quads, mixed experienced quads & men’s experienced quads. It was our recreational rowers first regatta representing and first competitive outing for LBC. It was a great days rowing and everyone had three or four races on the day.
Congratulations to our Captain Hannah and Vice Captain Alan and to all the rowers.
Our next regatta is in Galway on Saturday 2nd of September on the stretch of water at Menlo castle.
It was a great day out in Dublin & Galway will be the same, so, bring the family and enjoy.
It would be great to see as many people as possible involved again – even if you can only give very limited time or feel like your experience is limited, give us a shout, every little helps! We are down every weekend and most evenings.
Looking forward to seeing you in the near future.
PS. Love the new Kit
