Event details

   

The event was splash and dash sculling. It started a bit later than usual due to low tide at lunchtime. After an overcast start, it brightened up and was a beautiful sunny afternoon soon afterwards. See Big Al’s photos here on Facebook.

 

The two leading Open crews (Fog on the Tyne and Wear Past It)  started two points apart, both won four out of four, so remain two points apart going in to the final event at Durham in October. That should be worth coming along to (just for the racing, never mind the catering).

 

In the Women’s category, second placed Wear Here could not muster a full complement and had to pass, leaving first place Durham colleagues DARC Green to mop up four out of four again and extend their lead to an unassailable five and a half points going into the last round.
