2 Wins for CIRC at Shandon

Shandon Rowing Club hosted their inaugural event on Saturday the 29th of January in a sunny Cork Marina.

The first event to take place since restrictions were eased in the Republic of Ireland with crews travelling from across the country to take on the 4.5km challenge.

Despite rough conditions at the start line early in the day, the Womens J18A 4- and the Mens J15 8X came out on top in their respective races with over half a minute to spare on the second place boats. The Womens J18A 4- was crewed by Emma Madden (bow), Caoimhe Conneely, Sadbh Mannion, and Tara O'Neill (stroke). The Mens J18A 4 finished second in a very tight result, pipped at the finish line by 1.8 seconds. The J18A 4 was crewed by Frank O'Brien (bow), Cormac Conneely, Alex Bogue, Yegor Kaar and coxed by Cuan Friel.

Live results were available on the day to coaches and rowers on their devices via raceclocker.
