Sunday League 2014 - Round 1

The Splash & Dash races see crews racing side by side over a 250 metre course. So at Hexham each crew had four races to gain points for the overall league table.   With the emphasis on fun, friendly and social competition, the participants enjoyed a fantastic day of racing - albeit in slightly damp conditions towards the end.  

 

In the Women’s event Hexham RC’s Prisculla Queen of the River  took top place hoping to retain the trophy after Hexham’s Hex Factor  claimed the award in 2013. In second place was the fantastically named Tyney Temp-Oar  (TYN) and We’ar Winners  (DUR) each taking three wins.

 

Tyne RC’s Old Farther Tyne  crew finished top of the Open category on the day winning all four of their races. Second place was shared between three different teams: Talkin Comets (TTA), Four Oarsman of the Apocalypse (HEX) and DARC Dynasaurs (DUR) all taking three points each.

 

So Hexham and Tyne now sit at the top of the early Sunday League table, after picking up four points apiece from the opening event. Points in full are below.

 

“We had lovely water conditions today and the weather didn’t dampen any of the teams’ spirits,” said James Andrews, British Rowing’s Area Participation Manager for the Northern Region. “It was like a big reunion for many coming back after the long winter and catching up with friends from the league.”

 

“Thank you to Hexham and the team of volunteers for holding the event... it was great to see so many new faces for the first time as well as many returning teams and it’s fantastic to see so many clubs coming and taking part.”
