The Committee and members of Wicklow Rowing Club would like to express our sincere condolences to the family of our long time friend and fellow rower, Ken Cunningham who sadly passed last night.
Ken will be dearly missed by all at WRC as well as his clubs, Dalkey, St Patrickโ€™s rowing club and the wider rowing community. There is so much that can be said but mere words could not do justice . We shall all say goodbye at his funeral service on Saturday where a large club presence is expected.
Rest in Peace ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

Itโ€™s hard to express how proud everyone here at the Club is of Andrew & Eamon to see them arrive safely this morning into English Harbour Antigua after a gruelling 4800 kilometre row across the Atlantic . Completing this amazing adventure in 42 days 1 hour and 58 minutes coming 3rd in the Menโ€™s pairs and 13 th overall in the field of 38 boats . All their families were there to meet them as they stepped ashore with plenty of hugs and kisses . They will now take a well earned break with their families. The club have organised a homecoming party for them and you are welcome to come full details will be announced shortly.
Congratulations again lads absolutely amazing achievement.๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

What a journey! We are so very proud of Andrew and Eamon. Make sure to tune into the you tube channel to watch them cross the finish line ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿšฃโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช

After weeks of rowing, the lads are just 51 nautical miles from land and coming in hot! ๐Ÿ”ฅ
โ€ข
Currently flying along at 3.4 knots the ETA using the most recent data from the tracker is showing a predicted finishing time tomorrow of 10:05 UTC (06:05 Antigua time) HOWEVER with the building weather, this ETA has been dropping throughout the day, and could be considerably earlier. Keep an eye on the tracker for the latest updates from an ETA perspective. ๐Ÿ‘€
โ€ข
Something that we MIGHT see happen, is a shared live stream. Currently Atlantic Bro-ing are predicted to cross the finish line at 10:05 UTC, and Sam Glover from the Entrepreneur Ship is predicted to cross 10 minutes later! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
โ€ข
And actually, that will really be crazy, because Atlantic Bro-ing left 10 minutes earlier than Sam, so once the times are adjusted for the delayed start, the current estimated finish splits these two teams by TWO SECONDS!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿคฏ
โ€ข
Regardless - our Irish legends are almost home, and tomorrow is going to be INCREDIBLY emotional!! ๐Ÿ˜

STANDY BY FOR TEARS!!! ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿฅน

The latest World's Toughest Row ETA for the lads to reach Antigua is between the 23rd and 24th January ๐Ÿฅณ

That's this Tuesday-Wednesday! ๐Ÿคฏ

After what has been a phenomenal 37 days so far, this incredible expedition is almost over ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

Just 4 or 5 days left on the water for the Irish pair, and what an amazing privilege it has been to follow what they have been doing all this time. ๐Ÿ™

Final straight team! ๐Ÿ‡
