Boat Club Sessions 2012

Hello Everyone and a Happy New Year to you all.

It is that time of year to start planning for attendance at regattas in the coming year. I hope after the success we had with the Dalriada Regatta you will all be interested in attending this year to try and win the Dalriada Challenge Cup. (in better weather)

The dates for Dalriada Festival 2012 is the 13th -21st July, the rowing regatta will be held on Saturday 21st July. This year we will have hopefully more races for juniors and we will be starting at 12.00 midday. All along the marina will be a funfair and attractions for all the family. After the awards there will be a Fancy Dress Parade for everyone to take part in, with a free Barbeque and live music. This will be set along the beach front, followed by a fireworks display ending the regatta and the Dalriada Festival. There will be a Disco for all the Rowers and friends and family in the Bridge End Tavern Pub in the centre of Glenarm.

There is a free camp site and caravan park in Glenarm castle for all competitors and family, so please contact me with your clubs entry and accommodation needed and I will secure these bookings. Royal West and SCRA clubs have been offered use of the Still Waters Bunkhouse, so no need to camp if you don’t want to. The bunkhouse can accommodate a lot of people.

For those travelling from Scotland this year there will be travel discounts. I will confirm in the next 2-3 weeks exactly what P&O is offering, hopefully it will be the same as last year. The bookings for 2012 will be secured through me as I will be the contact for the bookings with P&O. So please remember first come first served.

Please notify any Rowing clubs in your area that you think might be interested in taking part. You can e-mail me or my contact numbers are as follows.
