Portadown Boat Club Marascull 2018
Rowers are preparing for the ultimate rowing challenge – the Portadown Marascull on Saturday 20th October. The 16k course meanders along the River Bann from Bann Foot, on the shores of Lough Neagh, to Portadown Boat Club.
Many junior and novice crews take part in the Marascull for their first experience of a rowing event and the great sense of achievement when they complete the 16k. It is okay to take the course at a steady rate – although all rowers must be fit and able to complete it.
Other more seasoned rowers will be looking forward to the mental and physical challenge of staying focused for the 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours it takes to finish and racing other crews.
Portadown Boat Club holds two large events every year – the Marascull in October at the start of the Head season and their renowned Regatta in May.
To keep competitors fueled for the event, Irwin’s Nutty Krust hot toast with dripping butter will be provided at the start. A light lunch of soup and fresh Irwin’s rolls will be served at Portadown Boat Club at the end of the event along with the important medal ceremony. However, this really is an event were everyone who completes the course is a winner.
Closing date for entries is midnight on Monday 15th October 2018.
