SOLID SILVER PERFORMANCES ALL ROUND (April 23rd)

Last weekend seven Ardingly Rowing Club rowers represented the South East at the Junior Inter-Regional Regatta at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham.

The rowers were selected after their performance at a race in Maidstone in March where they beat competition from other Clubs in our region.

The Junior Inter-Regional Regatta pits all 12 regions of the UK against each other. It is the first step on the National Pathway of rowing excellence and the Chief Coach of the GB Junior Squad was there talent-spotting.

Thirteen-year old Millie stormed ahead in her single scull to win her heat comfortably. In the final she had a fierce fight with a girl from the North West region with the lead changing many times. Millie was just pipped on the finish line but her SILVER medal is a first for Ardingly Rowing Club at this event. Millie also raced raced in a double scull with Anna finishing sixth in the A final after a hard fight.

Our four sixteen year old boys, Alex, Toby, Will, Alex S and Ellie in the coxing seat, switched from their preferred discipline of sculling (two oars each) to sweep rowing (one oar each) just 4 weeks before the Regatta. They teamed up with four others from Bewl Bridge Rowing Club for an 8-oared race. Their recent move to sweep rowing meant they started at a disadvantage compared to some of the other crews but with gutsy performances and determination they finished ninth in their race. Ellie enjoyed having complete control of 8 lads and did a super job in challenging windy conditions.

Coach Wolfgang Weis said, 'We had a great day, not only because of the results but also because of the wonderful display of team spirit. All the rowers, parents and supporters helped each other, looked out for each other and supported each other. I was proud of their watermanship and conduct on and off the water.'
