Tyne United New Year Head

A busy day at TURC for the women’s squad, helping organise the day and competing. There was an excellent turn out of women and we fielded a masters D 8; a status T2 8; and two masters C quads, one each at T1 and T2. Sone solid performances, with the T1 quad just being pipped for the win. Lots learned and now to build up to Tyne Head.

Rutherford Head 2018

A fabulous turn out by the women’s squad saw us enter a women’s masters D eight in division 1. They competed strongly and it was a solid first race for the eight. In the afternoon we had another eight in the senior women’s event. They did well and coped admirably with a steering issue. We also had a masters women’s C quad in division 2, who rowed well in a hotly contested category.

Pairs Head 2018

It was with great excitement Kat and Sophie arrived in London to be the clubs first participants at Pairs Head. The temperature was a barmy 18 at 10pm on the Friday night! However things started to go wrong when the host club issued a weather warning and a course inspection notice on Saturday morning. Eventually at 1pm on Saturday in torrential rain and a gusty windy they declared the race on. It was a magnificent sight and very exciting to see so many boats on the mighty Thames. After A soggy wait on the water, we got the call to strip and turn and the race began. It was a fabulous experience, which was over in a flash. No crabs, crying or crashes occurred and we were still smiling, if a little chilly when we returned to Putney High School boathous, who had kindly hired us a boat for the day. All in all a brilliant experience.

Ouse Marathon

It was a hot sunny day for the Ouse Marathon, in Cambridge. The course was 25km of weed free river winding through the countryside from start to finish. Along the way there were lots of supporters cheering you on and shouts of encouragement from the barges meandering along the river. 

Tyne United were represented by Martin in the masters men’s C single scull category and Sophie in the masters women’s B single scull event. Solid rows by both competing the course in 2 hours and 2 hours 7 minutes respectively.

Explore Series Round 6

Today was round 6 of the explore series host by Durham Amateur Rowing club. And what a fantastic day it was!! The weather was glorious and after our traditional bacon sandwiches, the racing began.

We had 3 races to complete and we won 2 of them. This means we are still top of the league table, closely followed by Tyne Arc, only 2 points behind.

The extra training that we have all put in has really paid off, and the team work on the day was fantastic!! 

The day was topped off with a nice leisurely row along durham river taking in the sights and scenery courtesy of DARC and their cox.

A perfect day had by all ?

British Masters Championships

We'll be back

The Masters Women took six boats down to The National Watersports Centre, Nottingham for the British Masters Championships.

The standard was extremely high and there were great performances all round in the Championship sculling races, but sadly no medals this year.

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!
