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.
