Sea Races
Lough Erne Canoe Rally 25/26th Sept.

City of the Tribes Race 2010 will run from the Fisheries Field, Galway

secure better parking but high cost issues involved.

Thanks to the efforts of various bodies parking in the Fisheries Field

drop off their kayaks in the Fisheies Field and find parking
elsewhere. (nearest Pay and display car park 2 minute walk away at &
behind Galway cathedral)

Entries from 11:30hrs. First start at 13:30hrs

In the evening of the 18th Galway Kayak Club are holding their annual
BBQ locally (in Galway Rowing club 3 minutes away). They have extended
an invite to paddlers staying on after the race, but require paddlers
who wish to come to give notification to galwaykayakclub@gmail.com or
info@galwaykayakclub.com by Wednesday 15th. Tickets are €5 payable on
the evening.

Look forward to seeing you in Galway.

Kayaking Wicklow Town area.

Hey Sorry if I shouldn't post here. Is there anyone in the Wicklow Town area who wants to meet up and go Kayaking. I'm a noob but I have a Robson Waikiki so I'd like flat water or Coast. I'd be into Meeting anyone interested.
Cheers.

It is a 25km race around the great island (Cobh) in Cork. Shorter distance also. If you go to the calendar and click the event link the details should be there.

It has been a bit epic the last two years with the weather. :-)
Great race.

Yip. Sea kayak or surf ski. Your choice. It is a salt water race but within cork harbour so some what sheltered.

You will need a 'long' boat for this race. No playboats. :-)
And be comfortable on a swell or with a cross wind. Other than that the distance is the only hindering factor in entering.
Burgers in marlogue bar for the debrief seems to be tradition.

John Barry Sea Kayak Race - Wexford Sunday 26-Jun-2011

Just to highlight that the second John Barry Sea Kayak Race is being held on Sunday week. Was on the first one last year and really must commend Shielbaggan Outdoor Education Centre on how well it was run. Everything from parking, shuttle bus, safety, refreshments and prizes was first class. Though maybe a bit more publicity about this event would be in order!


From the seakayaking.ie website:
http://seakayaking.ie/Sea-Kayaking/w...ayak-race.html

Quote:
The maps on the Race Notes page show course A from Rosslare Harbour to Wexford Harbour round three bouys of 16.7km. If the weather is bad it will be held exclusively inside the harbour using Course C. Novices and Juniors will Paddle course B inside the harbour (5km).


It is proposed to have four different classes:
  1. Elite class (inc. doubles)
  2. Touring class (inc. doubles) (Inc. prizes for first Plastic boats)
  3. Novice
  4. Junior class
The touring class will start first @ 12pm, followed by the elite class after 40min (2.40pm) and junior and novice class (start @ 3pm) will paddle a course inside Wexford Harbour of approximately 5 K.
This event will take place on sunday 26th June to avoid clashes with other kayak races. .
Cost €20
In order to access the start Shielbaggan OEC will run a shuttle service between the finish in Wexford and Rosslare Harbour..
Competitors will therefore park their car near the finish (space barriered off in the car park behind the tourist office, cars must be out by 7pm) and then be shuttled to the start. It is suggested that you arrive by 10pm to avail of the shuttle.The buses and trailers will then go to the finish and a pick up on rosslare Strand, in order to pick up kayakers who feel unable to complete the course.
On the water there will be four rescue boats all operating on Channel 71 who will pick up any kayakers who are in difficulty and ferry them to the shuttle buses. The safety boats will also sweep to ensure that nobody is left behind.

The finish point for the Race will be at the entrance to the breakwater in front of the tourist office on the quay front. Afterwards a prize-giving and sandwiches will be in the Talbot Hotel.
