Shandon had a big entry in Skibbereen Head on Saturday 16th November with 56 crews from the club competing. On a cold but perfect day for rowing, the club had a very successful outing with 11 wins across all categories including the Senior Men’s 8, stroked by Andy Harrington, which won the pennant for the fastest boat on the day, and an excellent win by the Women’s Junior 4X+ of Maddalena Fortune-Brandi (Stroke), Louise Forrester, Isabella Ross-Chu, Aine Gaffney and Ciara Tanner (cox) which came out top in the day’s most competitive category with 20 entries. There was great buzz about the club with plenty of support for the many Shandon crews and excellent refreshments were provided by Kathy Bradly and her crew of willing volunteers. A big thanks and congratulations to all our competitors and volunteers. Shandon Abú.
