Great result in the Ocean to City race in Cork
Aberdyfi crew win 2 Trophies.....


 
 
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 Shrewsbury" 
 
" 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."
