Portrush Raft Race 2021 cancelled to COVID-19 uncertainties

1 Mins read

The Committee of the iconic Portrush Raft Race has taken the reluctant decision to cancel this year’s event.

A spokesperson said “This is not a decision that has been taken lightly (last year was the first time the event has ever had to cancel since its inception in the early 1980s) but they feel that it is best to announce it now to avoid speculation as well as the cautious approach that is needed towards relaxation of the lockdown measures.

“Another major factor is that such an event cannot operate without the financial support of local business and the Committee feels it would be unfair and totally inappropriate to seek this when the local business community is facing unprecedented trading pressures.

“We are equally sure we will all get through this together and emerge as a strong and supportive community. Hopefully, 2022 will see a summer of relative normality and we can all get back to the things we enjoy and look forward to a bigger and better Raft Race with our headline sponsor Porter and Co.”
