Captain Katie had the brilliant idea of organising a “turn up & take part” event today, with the aim of working off the after effects of too much turkey/Christmas Pud/mince pies/Port etc etc.
This was the first TTARC competition using our two new stable quads, soon to be named “ “ and “ “! Perfect boats for the mixed up scratch crews, all of which seemed to be a competitive blend of 2 Seniors and 2 Juniors.
To her considerable surprise, 31 entrants turned up prompt at 0900, and so she herself had to take a seat. The weather was perfect considering what we’ve had this week, starting at just below freezing, but with bright sunshine by the end.
All races were hard fought with pretty close finishes, but the final was between Linda/Ian B/Georgina/Emily with Ben coxing, and Katie/Leo/Megan/Jacob with Eliza coxing, and the latter crew heaved gracefully to a 2 length win.
Thanks to Oarsport for prizes, so elegantly modelled in the photo.
To be repeated!
