Over the May Bank Holiday weekend, a number of our juniors, a junior coach and Masters rower laced up their trainers to take part in the Lockdown running Regatta.
The format followed that of a national rowing event with a 2k time trial on Saturday, C/B finals on Sunday and A finals on the Monday. Athletes could team up in “virtual” boats with their team's timed average counting.
With all demonstrating great sportsmanship, each final was made up of:
Op Int 1x Final C
WJ14/15/16 2x Final B
Op 2x Final B
J14/15/16 2x Final B
J14/15/16 1x Final B
Op Nov 1x Final A
Coach Matt (4th/4 overall)
J14/15/16 1x Final A
Alex D (3rd) fastest J14 overall*
Nick D (2nd) fastest J15 overall*
WJ14/15/16 2x Final A
Jaz/Holly (5th) fastest WJ15 overall*
WJ15/16/18 4+ Final A
Eva/Lola/Niamh/Lydia (2nd) fastest WJ15 overall*
Most athletes either achieved significant PBs on their second run or posted times that they were pleased with.
Weybridge finished 3rd in the men’s, women’s and junior’s Victor Ludorum with a 4th place overall. Well done everyone!
