We will give you guys a wave (pardon the pun) as we row past Cobh on our way up to the finish line in Cork.
We will be in a White boat called TrinityTide and over from the Thames for this great event.
Good luck for the weekend and i hope the weather holds for ye.

Hi Joe, you should be passing my window about 10 minutes into the race as I live near the Cobh waterfront. Best of luck!
