Ross regatta is also split over two days with the vets and junior races on the Sunday and the senior races on the Monday. Both days are over 750m but at Ross there is a very interesting and totally baffling staggered start and finish. Again, Andy and Gary won their Vet D pair’s race on Sunday. On Monday, there was a slight re-jig to the men’s quad owing to all the points being amassed, so they raced at IM1 and won. Not bad to say that Jake, Alex, Rich WT and Steve hadn’t actually sculled together.
And last but not least, after a tough semi final, the women’s IM2 coxed 8 easily won against the home team: Kate, Jenny, Helen, Vicky, Nicolette, Nicole, Elaine and Anne with Ruth coxing.
As ever, thanks to all those who helped get the boats there and back, and especially to Andy W and Gary who had to traipse back and forth numerous times.
