Three Christmas Cheers for Ardingly Rowers

Walton Small Boats Head is a traditional high standard finale to the year for rowers – with more than 600 crews racing in four divisions making it a challenging event. This year Ardingly Rowing Club came away with 6 wins from a small racing squad aged from their early 20s to mid 60s. Ian Andrews and Colin Barratt take highest honours on the day winning both their sweep-oared pair event and the double scull. This change of discipline, with just time for a cup of tea between races, demands great skill both physically and mentally. At the other end of the age range Harry Beedell and Richard Byrne-Smith won in their double scull and Elliott Green and Adam Wright won in their pair – both crews showing great form on the day. Finally in single sculls, demanding self-reliance and a bit of cunning steering to cut through the opposition, came wins from Alex Dombrowe and Joanna Toch. Joanna beat her nearest rival by over 30 seconds.

The rest of the squad didn’t disappoint and there was a sprinkling of second place finishes so the year ended well. Coach, Mostyn Field, was happy with today’s performances but knows there are better results to come. There is much to do in 2015!
