Celtic Challenge in May 2012-Dr. Jennifer Woods
Dear all, As some of you might know, I will be taking part in the Celtic Challenge in May 2012, which is an open sea rowing race from Arklow, Co Wicklow to Aberystwyth, Mid Wales, approximately 90 nautical miles across the Irish Sea. This year some 23 teams will be taking part from Ireland, Wales and other areas of the UK.
More information can be found on the Celtic Challenge here, including race rules, lists of crews entered and photos:

Or you can donate in person. A sponsorship form will be available in the Spanish Department Office.

Various videos are available on YouTube where you can view the race start and the sea conditions we face, including these from the 2008 race with Aberystwyth Mens Team:
