Explore Series Round 4

They've Got Skills

The Women’s Masters had a great day at Tees for the skills and drills leg of the Explore Series.

They were able to demonstrate all the required skills and drills, although maybe not as quickly as they would have liked.

Thank you to Fiona for coxing.

However heads held high, they still lead the women’s standings.

Bring on the sweep rowing in the next round at Durham on 24 June.

Well done ladies!

Strathclyde Park Regatta 2018

And they are off!

Regatta season began for the Masters Women at Strathclyde Park on 28th/29th April 

Rachael C, Rachel L, Sarah F, Kathryn, Sophie, Sarah C, Natalie, Angela and Claire competed in two quads, two doubles and a single across a range of categories.  The conditions were best descirbed as testing, with strong winds and lumpy water, but at least it didn't rain!  We managed to bring home a win and a second, with strong performances by all crews, particularly Rachael who had the worst of the conditions in her single.  Shopping was also successful, our kit bags replenished from the Crew Room stall. 

A good weekend all round!

Explore Rowing Round Two

A splendid day!

We had our first taste of racing today, after doing a Learn to Row course last year. We were joined by Lindsey had a little more experience and Fiona (aka “The Captain”) who had more again. Fiona provided excellent encouragement and Damien was a splendid cox.

We were the only all ladies crew, so competed in the mixed crews event. No wins (yet) but we worked hard and rowed them close. We certainly benefitted from Allen’s coaching on the way to get a good start.

The sun shone, we had great fun and we are all proud of what we have achieved so quickly in our rowing careers!  Roll on the next meet when hopefully we will be able to compete against the fairer sex!

Tyne United New Year Head

The TURC masters women were out in force for the New Year Head, with three quads and two doubles in various masters age group categories. The conditions were not overly kind, with a strong head wind and a fast flowing tide out, all crews had to dig deep. Once the race was completed everyone was similing and happy ready for a cuppa and some cake to tell tales of their afternoon racing.

Congratulation to Rachael and Maryam who won the women's double race and to Sarah, Rachel, Kathryn and Sophie on winning the women’s masters C quad race. Well done to all who took part.
