Dublin Head of the River 2007

posted by Roy R Sinclair ( Vice President - 28 Jan 2007

Two Inverness Rowing Club crews travel to Dublin this weekend for the annual Dublin Head of the River Race which is to be held on the River Liffey on Saturday 3rd February.
Both mens and womens eights have been training for this event since last November and are looking forward to the race with keen anticipation of a successful trip over the Irish Sea. Training has been conducted under the strict, experienced eye of coach Ian Hunter and has been stepped up over the past month to hone his athletes for the challenges of the many Irish crews, the tidal surges of the Liffey and the many historic bridges which characterise this famous stretch of water which passes through the middle of Dublin.
Crews and their supporters travel over to Dublin to have a preliminary outing on the Friday to familiarise themselves with the course prior to the race which starts at 11.30am on the Saturday.
