    Coalies Regatta 

    The season was kicked off with the first regatta starting at Coalporters Rowing Club in Southampton. With two of our crews having a heat to fight through first, it started tense. 

    The first crew to paddle out was the junior ladies pair. Livvi Bull and Lucy Taylor had a nervous start but were in the lead as they got to the buoy turn. Pushing out the buoys they got that much needed lead to row it home for a win and in to the final.

    The next crew up was the ladies senior 4. They had a strong race with fighting through was and passing boats to finish second. The crew of Laura Lock, Katie Martin, Chloe Martin and Jo Wells then had the nervous wait to see if they made fasted looser. Of course they did so now just the long wait till the final.

     

    When the finals started the junior pair were off first. All 3 crews were strong and it was a great battle down the course. Lymington got a lead early on and held the crew back with a comfortable row over the line.

    The next final was Men’s Masters 50. A crew of Tim Bull, Alan Taylor, Kenny Chalk and Tim Townsend had a tricky start as the new starting system was being tried out that day. Dodgy microphones from the umpires lead to a false start but after Lymington realizing the mistake and stopping the race they had a cracking start to kick off the final. Coxswain Daisy Bradford nailed a tight turn and Lymington were out in front. They pushed their was through to win the final.

    The last race of the date for Lymington Rowing was the ladies Senior 4. The girls had a great start and stayed with the other crews down to the buoy turn. They had a great finish in 3rd including the club on the bridge singing Happy Birthday to Laura Lock as they rowed over the finish line.

     

    It was a great day for the whole club and a brilliant way to start off the season.

     

    Next regatta: Ryde 21st May and Shanklin 22nd May 2016

    Racing

    The first race of the year will be Thames Valley Trail Head (31st January). We have a good turn out of crews for this race and will be competing in all 3 sections. This is a very popular race so we will need entries in asap to make sure we can get a chance. The form is on the notice board as usual.
