Inaugural Barrow Descent

From the marathon site:

Quote:
Hi all,

This October 29th, the inaugural "Waterways Ireland Barrow Descent" will take place on a 23km stretch of the River Barrow from Goresbridge, Co. Kilkenny-St. Mullins, Co. Carlow.

With 12 weirs along the course, safety will be of paramount importance and while members from Thomastown Paddlers will be covering several of them, further volunteers will be needed. Any help you/or your members can be in assisting the running of this event would be greatly appreciated. We hope that this inaugural event will grow, possibly one day to be a sister event to the Liffey Descent itself.

We hope to have free camping with showers close by in Thomastown, and there will be an after race "Halloween Fancy Dress Party" that you and your friends are all welcome to attend. This has the makings of a great weekend

If you can help us out in anyway possible (or know of any other groups etc that can) I would be hugely appreciative if you could let them know and maybe e-mail me @: thomastownpaddlers@gmail.com.

Looking forward to hearing from you all, please get in touch soon if you can be part of the safety team.

A Race notice will be published shortly on www.canoe.ie

Yours in paddling,

Donnacha Brennan (Organiser on behalf of Canoeing Ireland, Marathon Committee

Being a thomastown man myself, and having paddled the stretch a good few times, I can recommend it although the sections between weirs might seem a bit long for some people in shorter boats!!!

GalwayFest. https://www.facebook.com/galway.fest.9?ref=ts&fref=ts

This is the third year of this event which is part of the Irish Whitewater Race League. Its a two day event with a whitewater time trial on the Boluisce in Spiddal on Saturday and a freestyle event on Sunday.

You can register online here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/13kQ...requested=true

Its a great event, there was around 120 competitors last year and were hoping for even more this year.

There is a "minor" thing happening called the Club Championships, think you are the best club in Ireland ? Prove it:

http://canoe.ie/en-us/competition/cl...ships2014.aspx

Sh** talking aside it is a great opportunity to gain experience in new discplines. Check out the link for more.

Also, Paddlefest 2014, I am not associated with these guys but I was at Paddlefest 2013 and it was an exceptional weekend, I would recommend it to anyone who likes time on the water and wants to try something new:
