- regional trials on Saturday 2 March at Cambois RC
- full competition on 27 April at Peterborough
The Junior Inter-Regional Regatta will be held on Saturday 27 April 2019 at Peterborough.
Last year our region did well and came 7th overall out of the 12 English and Welsh
regions. As we were the highest placed region out of the bottom 6 in 2017, we also
won the Martyn Humphrys Cup. See a full report of 2018 here.
Regional trials - results
The trials to choose our regional team for April were to have been held at Cambois
RC on Saturday 9 February 2019, but due to high winds forecast, this was cancelled
and rearranged for Saturday 2 March 2019.
The conditions on the rearranged day were good despite Storm Freya lurking. Crews
raced in head race format over 5 divisions. The course was 1000 metres long (the
Peterborough distance). Thanks to Cambois RC for being the usual hospitable hosts.
The results of the day are here as an xlsx and here as a pdf. Crews were selected
to represent the region at Peterborough, based largely on these results, but with
other factors taken into account.
Team to represent the region
The team that was selected can be downloaded here - as xlsx or pdf.
But ....... the competition was cancelled due to forecast high winds. Sorry!
However for the record, this message was been passed on to the athletes by the Team
Manager beforehand :
I would like to congratulate all those selected to represent the Northern Region
in the Junior Inter Regional Regatta this Saturday. I wish you the best of luck and
we hope to see some outstanding performances, but remember you can only do your best
and every point counts whether you achieve 1 point or 12!
