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.
