Durham City Regatta

Well done everyone and thank you to all the parent helpers, the junior section had 6 wins despite the absence of several crews due to exams and other commitments. We had 4 composite crews with Hexham for the J13 girls. Almost all crews won their first race and lots of crews reached the finals. It was bit windy for most of the weekend which made steering difficult but apart from that the conditions were good.

Winning Crews on Saturday:

  • J15.1x - Michael Bessent
  • J16.1x - Ethan Taylor-Foley
  • J15.2x - Michael Bessent and Will Viney
  • J16.2x - 1st Matt Hudson and Ethan Taylor-Foley
Matt Hudson and Tom Brewer rowed up to J18.2x and reached the final after beating some good crews. Luke Taylor won his first two heats in the J15 single.  Other rowers who also performed well today were Georgia, Maisie, Charlotte, Amelia (cox), Elizabeth, Sophia, Ethan King, Max Forrest and Fraser Hutt.

Winning Crews on Sunday:

  • WJ13.2x - Charlotte and Maisie
  • J15.4x+ - Will, Ethan K, Chas and Luke
Georgia, Elizabeth, Elysia, Harriet, Ella, Marnie and Sophia also rowed well and Amelia coxed well as usual. Elizabeth rowed well in her first race in a single. The J13 girls quad and J14 girls quad got to the final. Well done everyone.
