As this is the first outing since crews came back training in September, the results of this Head will give a good indication of hoe crews are performing. The Captain and Coaches are happy with progress so far.

Table Quiz

Monday the 7th of November sees the return of Fermoy Rowing Club's ever-popular Table Quiz. The first quiz is for the Rotary Club, to be followed a week later by a quiz for the Sub-Aqua Club.


There will be a special Extraordinary General Meeting of Fermoy Rowing Club on Thursday October 27th. This will take place in the Clubhouse at 8.30pm and is necessary to ratify Club rule changes. All members are requested to attend.

Flag Day

The Club will hold a fund-raising Flag Day on Thursday the 27th of October. This is necessary in order to raise much-needed funds as membership has increased and this has placed a strain on the Club. Last year's entry fees for Regattas cost approximately €7,500 and the upkeep of current equipment will cost over €10,000.

Youth Disco

We will hold a Youth Disco on Friday the 28th of October. This starts at 9pm and ends at 11.45pm. These discos are fully supervised by adults and are great fun.
