Paddy’s Run is done- for this winter


Paddy’s Run Round Seven

The seventh and final round of the 2018 Norwich Masters Sculling Ladder took place on April Fool’s Day. It turned out to be the most eventful round; one sculler suffered irreparable damage to his blade following a collision with another sculler near the starting line.

Broadland’s Laurence Taylor held off Robert Conway (Norwich) an Anthony Meynell (Yare) to claim the title of fastest man while Lou Green (Yare) was the fastest woman. Tom Hockley (Norwich) was the fastest newcomer while Alex Meadows (Yare) won the Meynell Medal for being the oldest sculler to complete all seven rounds.

Yare Boat Club would like to thank David Wynn and the volunteer time keepers who made this event possible.
