Junior Squad at Plymouth Regatta

Plymouth being the first regatta of the WEARA season saw ten of our juniors taking part in their first races. The expanse of water was their first concern but they all dealt with the tidal water well. The start, as ever, was a little choppy but our crews all dealt well with the necessary manoeuvring on tidal water.

The juniors had a successful days racing with all crews sculling well and adapting to the conditions as well as new crews. The benefits of consistent winter training can be seen in the list of winners.  We also had new coxes in Lucy D and Livvy who steered well and found voices we didn’t know they had! Thanks also to Kate and Frankie for their coxing.

We had loads of family support on the bank and were very impressed with the way the juniors helped and supported each other with carrying, launching, trailer loading and demonstrating fantastic team spirit. Many thanks to Nigel for loaning us his truck and Captain Joe for taking on trailer duties.
