Coastal Rowing Events Calendar

Following the ravages of the pandemic on sport in general and coastal rowing in particular, our Calendar is quite sparse at the moment however we are hopeful that the relaxation of restrictions will continue as planned and as clubs, associations and organisations set dates for their planned regattas & events to take place during the coming Coastal Rowing Season, we’ll populate this calendar as the information become available.

If you have an upcoming event which will be of interest to the Irish Coastal Rowing Community and you would like to share it in this calendar,
