Well Done to everyone who raced today!! You all did yourselves and the club very proud.

Throughout the day we had several wins and some very exciting racing.

Congratulations to the following who won their events:

WJ15 2x All three crews put in some very impressive performances throughout their heats with The final almost ending up to be TURC vs TURC. With strong competition Anna and Holly comfortably won the final.

WJ14 8x+ Eloise and Louise were part of a composite boat with Hexham ARC, this crew has trained mostly at TURC with one session at DARC. With an old Empacher as their boat, the girls stormed through the heat and into the final which they won by 3 lengths.

WJ18 2- This was Hannah and Lucy’s first competition in the pair and it was definitely one to remember, they received a bye into the final and were up against DARC on their home water. The girls held onto DARC and pulled away up the course to win by 1.5 lengths.

J16 2x Luke and Will went through several heats going on to win each one with a very noticeable result. Their final was against QEHS - a tough race but another win.

Well done to everyone who raced, today was a great day and hopefully the start of a brilliant Summer Regatta Season for you all. An exceptional performance for a small club - Well done All, you definitely made me proud to assist in your training.

Thank you to all parents and family for your continued support!!
