Rowing Regatta

Navigation and Mooring Restrictions

Sun 1st Aug 2021

Waterways Ireland wishes to advise all masters and users of the Shannon Navigation of navigation and mooring restrictions in Carrick- on- Shannon to facilitate the Rowing Club Regatta on Sunday 1st August 2021

The Regatta will be held on a 500 metres stretch of water immediately south of the town bridge commencing at 0900hrs and finishing at approx 1800hrs.

Craft wishing to make a through passage will be facilitated every 2 hrs approximately, during the course of the regatta.

Masters should note that ONLY vessels of an overall length of 22ft. / 6.8m or less will be permitted on the floating jetties from Wednesday 28th July to Sunday 1st August.

This is necessary in the interest of marine safety and to facilitate the laying of the competition course.

Vessels berthed from Wednesday 28th July at 1600hrs will be required to remain in place until racing finishes at approx 1800hrs on Sunday 1st August.

No vessels should approach the jetties between 1600hrs on Wednesday and approx 1800hrs on Sunday as the entrance to the berths will be closed off and manoeuvring room will be severely restricted due to the proximity of the course.

Masters are advised to proceed at slow speed and with due caution and to take note of advice from course marshals when passing through the area.

Waterways Ireland takes this opportunity to thank its customers for their co-operation with these arrangements.
