COVID-19 Update – Easterns + Southerns postponed

It is with tremendous disappointment I am formally announcing that the Easters and Southerns are to be postponed due to the very gradual easing of restrictions in relation to outdoor sports.

Next official government update is due in May which might start to give us some indication if our July events (DL Week + Inlands, Blessington) can go ahead

Northern Rep Paul Mclaughlin and Carrickfergus are confident there will be a Northerns in August. Hopefully by September for the Nationals lockdowns will be a distant memory! Additional dates later in the season will be considered with the host clubs for postponed events!

As always as soon as I have any definite decisions/updates I’ll post updates.

Stay safe,
Robbie
RS Supreme Galactic Commander (Ireland)

Volvo Dun Laoighre Week

DL early entry finishes on the 31st of March – we currently have 3 x 400s registered https://www.dlregatta.org/race-office/entries-to-vdlr-2021/ We would need sufficient numbers to have our own starts for the 200s/400s – I appreciate it is very uncertain at the moment and there may be some clarity next week so in an attempt to gauge interest I’ve started the following poll! With vaccinations ramping up the summer might start looking hopeful…

COVID-19 Update – 2021 Events

Quick update on current plans/thinking for the 2021 season. We are
waiting for official updates to confirm what is or is not possible. We
are in regular contact with our hosts clubs for events scheduled this
season and will do our best to work with them and the relevant
guidelines in place at the time. Currently inter-country travel and
racing can only take place in Level 2. As soon as any firm decisions
or updates are available I’ll post them on facebook and send an email.
I hope everyone is staying safe and not going too crazy!
