For those of you who don’t have access to the Club’s Facebook or the Junior Facebook pages you may not be aware of the success of our small team representing the Western region on Saturday at the Junior Inter Regional Regatta.
The conditions were as good as I’ve seen at the NWSC at Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham. The wind went somewhere else and the sun arrived so water conditions were good. A light shower late in the afternoon was quite refreshing!
There were twelve teams from each of the British Rowing regions.
The racing was in 6 lanes over 1500 metres with everyone racing for a good time. The six fastest crews went into the A final and the next 6 into the B final with points being awarded 12 for a win, 11 for second etc in the A final and 6 for a win, 5 for second etc in the B final so everyone got points for their region. The first three crews were awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze medals. Full results are on the JIRR website but our results are as follows:
WJ16 1x Phoebe – Gold
J15 2x Ed & Ollie – Gold
J14 2x Tom & Tommy – Gold
WJ16 2x Jas and Frankie – 3rd in B final
WJ14 2x Lily & Megan – 5th in B final
The Club can be very proud of our team who displayed sporting attitudes throughout. Brilliant attitude and performances. The West team finished with 92 points with our scullers earning 42 of them. Really well done everyone!
