The club had a large entry in Skibbereen Regatta at Farran Woods on the 15th April.   With over 500 crews involved it was the biggest one day regatta yet held in Ireland and it delivered an excellent days racing.   It was the first of four Grand League regattas.   This is the third year of the Grand League and we have managed to win a pennant at the end of the series in both 2010 and 2011.    

All Shandon crews tried hard on this occasion and most proved to be very competitive.   We secured an excellent total of five wins.   Laura, Roisín, Holly and Saoirse once again captured the WJ18 4X title.    Jack and Andy won the MJ2X, Colm Hennessy won a MJ15 1X final, Ronan, Stephen, Daniel, Evan coxed by Annie won a MJ14 4X+ final and Stephen triumphed again in a MJ14 1X final beating club mate Ronan by canvas.

As a result fo these and other placings the club finished 10th (of 21) in Mens Division One and 8th (of 17) in Women's Division One.
