Over the May bank holiday weekend (2nd - 5th May), St Michael’s Rowing Club have teamed up with GOAL to send two crews across the Irish Sea to participate in the biennial 'Celtic Challenge’. The race sets off from Arklow, Co. Wicklow with the finishing line in Aberystwyth, Wales. At 150km, this relay race is billed as the longest ‘true’ rowing race in the world. Both teams are taking on this challenge to raise funds in aid of the people of the Philippines and a much needed skiff for St. Michael’s Rowing Club, Dun Laoghaire.

The club urgently needs help in finding support boats and a support rib for the challenge. The support vessel must not be less than 10m in length and the powered RIB not less than 4m in length. If you have a yacht, licensed angling or dive boat, pleasure cruiser and would be willing to come along for what will be a memorable journey, please get in touch.

For an information pack on the event please contact Gareth Whittington on 086 044 7241 or email gareth@finraiderz.com
