The Norwich sculling masters raced the 15 kilometre monthly time trial today (Sunday 16th February) in glorious sunshine from the upstream railway bridge to Paddy’s pump and back. Lou, Andy G., Anthony, Ian P., and Nick from YBC joined scullers from NRC and Broadland with Roger Croome timekeeping. The slowest went off first with suitable intervals so most had company throughout and there were plenty of comments, some encouraging but others less so as the overtaking took place. Once again at YBC there was general euphoria afterwards as everyone had had a very good scull and thoroughly enjoyed the competition and rivalry. The conditions on the way back were challenging as we battled against both the wind and tide as well as the stream. After the Norwich HORR a trophy will be awarded to the sculler at the top of the ladder.
Here is the Sculling Ladder as it stands at the moment.
