The annual event consists of individuals and teams racing a set time or distance on the rowing machine in a variety of categories and age groups.

The outstanding performance of the day was David Barlow’s time of 1 min 33.8 secs to cover  500 meters. This was an incredible effort and a personal best for David. He came second out of a total of 36 competitors and this earned him the Silver medal for the event. The Sligo Grammar School Rowing club is thriving under the coaching of Ronan Ivers.
