Welcome to Ocean to City - Cork's Maritime Festival


This year's Ocean to City Race - An Rás Mór takes place on Saturday 31st May 2014. 

For more information on this year's events, please sign up to our newsletter.  


Organised by Meitheal Mara

Ocean to City - An Rás Mór is Ireland's very own long-distance rowing race attracting hundreds of participants annually.

Now in its tenth year, it has grown from its origin as a race for traditional fixed-seat boats into an all-inclusive rowing event, embracing everything from traditional wooden working boats, currachs, skiffs, gigs and longboats to contemporary ocean racing shells, kayaks and canoes.

With thousands of spectators each year, the race is a real flagship event for Cork Harbour; one of the largest natural harbours in the world.
An Rás Mór (''The Big Race'') covers 15 nautical miles (28 km) and appeals to a wide range of rowers and paddlers from across Ireland and beyond.
It includes races over four distances, all finishing to a warm welcome in Cork's city centre. More info...
