Cork Boat Club will host its second Ergathon which will be held at Mahon Point Shopping Centre on Saturday 21st March from 11am to 5pm.  Like a sponsored walk where contributors sponsor walkers for a certain distance walked, an ergathon contributor sponsors the number of metres an athlete will row on a land based rowing machine.

Our goal is to raise over €6,000 with this event for crucial repairs to our clubhouse.  We are asking all members to seek sponsorship to support their rowing efforts in the Ergathon.  Sponsorship cards are currently being issued to members.

Come to Mahon Point Shopping Centre on 21st March to support and cheer on our athletes.
