Charlie Shore Children’s Regatta 2014

Sunday 14th September saw the fourth CS regatta following its resurrection by REIC and TwRC.

Teams of nine children from the local rowing schools competed – in a series of 24 races designed to give everyone three races in a variety of the club’s Explore Rowing boats.

Points were awarded (3 for a win, 2 each for a dead heat (we had one) and a bonus point to a losing crew with an overlap).

After a day of some exciting and close racing, everything rested on a single sculling race in the last round.  Team Beanz won overall with a points total of 26 just ahead of Team D. 

“Beanz” was - Spike, Olivia,  Ben,  Aliyah,  Adam,  Hanna,  Molly, Emily and Meddi all between 14 and 15 years of age.

Well done everyone who took part, and a huge thanks to the volunteers who kept everything running smoothly.

“Attention…Go” A Report from Peterborough Regatta

Sunday morning saw sheets of icy rain pound Peterborough with furious abandon. The lake, a froth of waves and spray, saw brave crews battle it out over a 500m course. Two brave men of Twickenham took a stand against the elements and the titanic opposition to brave the novice double event. Their hard won pink racing kit standing out in stark contrast to the grey and turgid waters of the lake. A look of determination and pride was set on their handsome features as they made their way to the stake boats in preparation for the race.

By a quirk of fate they were drawn in lane one, the closest to the bank where reeds bobbed their heads ready to entangle any unwary sculler who happened to come too close.
