Ocean to City Lapps Quay Finish Cork Harbour Festival
  • June 10, 2017
    13:30 - 18:00

Over 200 boats and 600 participants from Ireland, U.S, Holland and Great Britain, are set to descend on Cork City this weekend for Ireland’s premier rowing race on Saturday 10 June.

For the first time in Ocean to City’s history, there has been a significant change of race route, due to the high winds forecast for Cork Harbour on the day. As a sensational alternative to the Ocean to City route, participants will enter the water at Port of Cork to race a river route along the north shore to Blackrock Castle, and passing back on the southern shore along the Marina to the finish line at Port of Cork.

There will be viewing points at Lapp’s Quay, along the Marina and Blackrock Village for spectators to cheer the rowers and paddlers along the river route.

There will be race commentary at the finish line by Cork 96FM Ken Perrott, and a live broadcast of The Score, with Trevor Welch, as well as plenty of family fun featuring music, the festival market and circus street performances. The after-party celebrations kick off from 9pm along Albert Quay!

Soak up the buzz, mingle with crews and celebrate the 13th Ocean to City Race, Saturday June 10th!
