Boats ready and waiting at Chester-le-Street on 10 October 2017 (click for larger
The seventh round of the Explore Series (previously the Sunday League) in 2017
was at Chester-le-Street ARC on 10 September 2017. It was the same day as the Great
North Run, so entries were well down - obviously a lot of rowers are also runners.
It was a sweep Splash and Dash event. For some coming off this summer’s L2R courses,
this was their first race (and almost first time sweeping). Well done!
Thanks to everyone at CLSARC and to Tyne ARC and Tyne United RC (for lending boats)
for making it a successful day.
The results matrix is below - only 9 crews were there, so a relatively short but
hard fought afternoon’s racing! It is downloadable here as a pdf or click on the
