Any ex rowers in our membership who would be interested in trying to get this going at Ballyholme YC or maybe locate in Bangor as part of new Coastal Masterplan - they use similar course layouts to ourselves tbh and could race around the Royal Ulster buoys (or BYC ones when the bay not full of swimmers and dinghies).

These arent the “skiffies” but offshore versions of normal quads, doubles and skulls.

Both types (“Coastal” and “Offshore”) are now under Rowing Ireland after a few years of fighting between the two camps. They tend to have different clubs for Coastal and Offshore with different ethos although I’m sure some have started both - theres also talk of Offshore being future Olympic sport, and they have had a World Championship for a few years.

Offshore rowing is one of the fastest growing water sports in Ireland although there are clubs in England going back for many years.
