Benny Cullen has just been down in Cork promoting the blueway10k.
Online tutorials have been available for the last few weeks for those who registered through the Blueway10k website and Canoeing Ireland website and all of this will culminate with paddling 10k events happening on August 20th throughout Ireland.
The Phoenix Kayak Club will use the day to check out the Bantry Blueway and host the 10k event there. This is suitable for everyone to participate in and the event us still open to join-so just register!
Each participant will get a T-shirts, a medal, a snack bag and I've been promised blueway10k waterproof phone cases for participants.
The day ties in with the annual garnish island swim with which we are already getting a free dinner for those who stay on help with the safety for the swimmers. Some people are arranging to stay down but canoeing Ireland have offered to pay for a minibus and trailer for those who just want a day trip to the 10k event.
We are also getting a monitory return of €10 to the club for everyone who registers for the event with Phoenix. So the more that enter the better kayak we can buy for the club!
And best of all- it'll be a great day out!
