Intervsarsities This Week

With only two days to go the excitement is really starting to build here in UCC Canoe Club. Whitewater trials were held over the weekend at the Upper Bandon race and will be announced shortly along with polo, freestyle and slalom teams.

We will be leaving western Gateway on Thursday morning at 10.30am and travelling up to Belfast. The following day we will be heading to Shaw’s Bridge in the city to cheer on our slalom and freestyle teams before socialising with the other clubs. The Saturday morning consists of Whitewater takng place on the River Roe outside of the city before Polo which takes place in the afternoon at Knockbraken Reservoir before another night of socialising. The fancy dress theme for the Saturday Night is kids movies and we hope you all have your costumes picked out! On Sunday morning the final event of the weekend takes place, Long distance. This is a 4k paddle through Belfast city centre in which everyone competes. We will then head to Ulster University for a prize giving ceremony before making the journey home.
