David’s Cana­dian row­ing adventure

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

VIC­TO­RIA Island is an ex­tremely large island sit­u­ated in north­ern Canada in the Cana­dian Arc­tic Ar­chi­pel­ago.

Slightly larger than Great Bri­tain, it is the eight largest island in the world and Canada’s sec­ond largest.

David Hussey – the cox, coach and gen­eral man­ager of the El Nino Row­ing club of Port­magee – has for many years now com­peted at events through­out the coast of Ire­land and, of course, many re­gat­tas in the waters of Iver­agh and Kerry.

He re­cently vis­ited Vic­to­ria Island to com­pete in the World Coastal Row­ing cham­pi­onship’s Sin­gle Sculls event and was ac­com­pa­nied by Paddy Den­nis of Knight­stown, a loyal friend of long stand­ing.

David has also com­peted at events in Peru, France and Monaco.

He looks for­ward to next year com­pet­ing in the World Coastal Row­ing Cham­pi­onships in Vic­to­ria Har­bour, Hong Kong, and also he also said he in­tends to take in the rugby World Cup in Ja­pan.
