Yare BC race at Whitlingham Week 12-16th June 2013
On Thursday evening the Women’s quad, bow-steered by club captain Catharina won against Norwich.
In an all-YBC first round of the Masters’ Open singles, David Wynne beat Ian Postlethwaite, then won the final over Norwich (Bound). David promises to waive the age difference handicap if he draws Ian for the third year running in 2014!
Chris George also had a go at racing in the singles in Never Raced Before status.
On a sparkling Friday evening on the Whitlingham Great Broad, Ali Sursham featured in the almost unique kayak/rowing round robin relay event. Leading “team D” in a powerful display of mixed double sculling, Ali inspired the whole team to a conclusive 3 match lead. And did much of the regatta organisation with a team of local club volunteers.
The final event of Whitlingham Week is the scratch 8 rowing races, again on the Great Broad.
