Bexhill Regatta 2014

18/05/2014 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Regatta Report:

Back at Bexhill again, once again in glorious sunshine and calm seas, but this time for Bexhill Regatta. And again, a fabulous day of racing from Shoreham, picking up 7 wins and a selection of 2nds and 3rds.

Shoreham fans would be forgiven for mistakenly thinking that there are hardly any men in our illustrious club, as our ladies stole the show today with fantastic wins coming from the Ladies/J18 Double Scull,  Ladies Senior Pairs, Ladies Senior Fours, Ladies Novice Fours, Ladies Junior Pairs and Ladies Junior Fours. In point of fact our ladies won every race apart from what was perhaps the closest race of the day, with the J16 girls’ quads. With crews from Shoreham, Worthing and Bexhill absolutely neck and neck to the line, it was an epic race, won by Bexhill by a quarter of  a length, with a final surge from Shoreham getting them the second place a bow-ball ahead of Worthing.

Whilst no wins came for Shoreham’s men at Bexhill, they did attend and they did do well; their results included a second place in the Mens Junior Pairs, second in the Vet 50+ Fours and an epic row from a scratch crew in the Mens Senior Fours getting the men a fantastic third place. One less successful event for the men was the Junior Scull, who after leading to the turns got tangled in the bouy rope and was subsequently lost several places before getting free for the final 1km.

Unfortunately the day’s successes weren’t quite enough to get the Bexhill Grand Aggregate trophy,with Shoreham losing it by just 2 points to Deal, however it did secure the Ladies Aggregate trophy and one of Shoreham’s most successful regattas in recent seasons. An epic weekend of racing, showing some real grit and determination from all crews involved. Bring on the Worthing weekend…
