The Cahersiveen Regatta took place on Sunday the 19th July in perfect rowing conditions and all the rowing supporters were served up some magnificent racing. The home Senior Mens crew of Cahersiveen will be delighted with a magnificent performance to win the Senior Mens race amongst some tough competition. The Minor Ladies of Sneem were challenged all the way by a fantastic display from the Over the Water Minor Ladies who were just beaten on the day this is very definitely one category to watch. The Minor Boys was another great battle with Sive winning on the day from Cromane so honours were reversed from Cromane Regatta. The Under 14 Mixed race was another fantastic win for the Sneem Boys and there was another great finish by Sive and Cromane with Cromane taking the silver on the line. The Under 16 Boys had to have a rerun due to one of the buoys moving on incoming tide and this was a magnificent race between Sive and Sneem with Sive winning on the day. The SeineBoat race served us up another great feast with nothing seperating the crews to the first buoy and and second buoy and it was only on the way home did the fitness of Cnuicin prove crucial so well done to Michael O Driscol and his gallant crew of Cnuicin. Donal Tommy O Sullivan of the Cahersiveen Rowing club was delighted with the support and thanked all the clubs for travelling.
The crews of Mid and South Kerry enjoyed a fabalous second points regatta and already there is some magnificent battles in different categories so it will make a very interesting summer ahead. A big thank you to Cahersiveen rowing club for a wonderful regatta and next week we move on to Ballinskelligs Regatta with draw for the buoys down for 2 o clock.
