Changes to the Open Sea Committee

After many years service to the Open Sea Committee both John Redmond Chairman and Martin Monks Handicapper have decided to step down from the committee.   We would like to thank both John and Martin for the enormous contribution they have made over the years to the committee and to the Open Sea Races.

The Open Sea Committee ask that Leinster Clubs encourage their members who participate in the open sea races to volunteer and come forward in the following roles:

  • Equipment;
  • Van or Trailer Driver
  • Assisting with Liffey Swim; and
  • Lough Dan;

Equipment
We need somebody who would be prepared to check out and in equipment needed for each of the races from our stores.
Van Driver or Car with Tow Bar
We need people who may have either an empty van or who have a tow bar on their car  and would be prepared to tow a trailer containing equipment to the races.  This is a job that we would prefer to share out between two people as it is an onerous committment for one person.

The Open Sea Committee needs new faces with new ideas to enhance and continue the work of the committee.   We therefore would warmly welcome new people to join us.  Therefore we would ask people who are interested in coming forward to email leinsteropenseacommittee@gmail.com.
