Worthing Town Regatta 2014

01/06/2014 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm


Regatta Report:

Thanks to Worthing Town for hosting us all for Regatta number four of the 2014 CARA League. We were greeted by fine weather and only a slight northerly breeze on arrival so had high hoped for a successful day. We were not disappointed as the Shoreham contingent turned on the style with 7 wins! It was not just Shoreham putting on a good show as all clubs brought their A game and spoils were very widely spread – every club attending took at least a second place prize home with them.

What started out as a very flat sea, chopped up considerably and only the first 5 races got the benefit of it. After the fifth race the rowers had to contend with turbulent seas. Boat stopping troughs, large peaks and runners long enough to mix up the positions, gave really exciting racing for the spectators but very tough conditions for the competitors. These tough seas and some very determined racers meant that two races during the day were re-rowed after collisions around the turns.

Shoreham are now showing some real promise for the remainder of the season with five status wins on the day and 19 wins from the first win regattas. Four of today’s wins came from our incredibly strong ladies squad who seem to have strength and depth in all status levels. Wins from the Ladies Senior Four, Ladies Senior Pair, Ladies Junior Four and Ladies Junior Pair demonstrating their dominance. The ladies also took wins in the Double Scull and the U16 Quad Sculls. The men did not disgrace themselves with a fine win in the junior sculls and third places in the Junior Pair and the Novice Sculls.
