Great result for Aberdyfi as our crew win 2 Trophies in the 15 nautical
mile Ocean to City race held in Cork on Saturday, June 8th.
Our Aberdyfi crew of David Chapman, Paul Chesworth,
Dylan Evans, Paul Cruickshank and cox Kara Chesworth were the fastest boat in
the race and first Celtic longboat to finish in a time of 2 hours, 11 minutes
and 13 seconds.
" There were over 100 boats taking part in the
race and other Celtic longboats from Porthmadog, Aberystwyth, Llanion and
" The conditions were good , with a
bit of a swell and no wind, but extremely hot. We made sure we took on plenty
of water before the race to help prevent heat exhaustion but some crews found
the heat a bit too much"
"It is a tough race, but we thoroughly enjoyed it and it
is certainly very sociable after the race! We had a great time and are
thrilled to have brought back two trophies for Aberdyfi Rowing Club."
