The festival got underway at the weekend, with Cork’s Ocean to City race returning on Saturday, which saw many new and returning faces taking part in the flagship festival event.
The event featured everything from currachs, skiffs, longboats, kayaks, and paddle boards, with many participants travelling from places such as the Netherlands, the US, and the UK.
Meanwhile, the first overall SUP (stand-up paddleboarding) Jason Coniry memorial trophy was awarded to Justin MacCarthy.
