The 2017 Coastal Rowing Season got off to a flying start on Sunday, 21st May in Whitegate. It was a great start to the season, with some impressive racing, especially from the underage crews, on display.
Rushbrooke Rowing Club were especially delighted with the rowing skills of our underage rowers, many of whom it was their first time racing. Our u14 girls came home in 1st place, with 3rd place for our u12 girls and 2nd place for our U14’s and U14b’s. Our u16 girls and u16 boys both finished 2nd in their respective races and our u18 boys also finished 2nd.
Our adult crews also had a very successful day with crews being placed in medal positions as follows:
Mixed Masters – 3rd Vet Ladies – 2nd
Pre Vet Men – 3rd Junior Ladies – 3rd
Intermediate Ladies – 1st Intermediate Men – 3rd
The next Regatta will be held in Whitegate on Sunday 4th June. If you are interested in taking up the sport of Coastal Rowing, we always welcome new members. We are based in Rushbrooke, just before the old Rushbrooke Hotel and are on the water Tuesday – Thursday and Sunday mornings (where there are no Regattas). See our Facebook Page for times and more information on the Club.
