Peterborough Regatta 2010
Saturday 5th June
Men's IM3 4+ boat; as this comprised one experienced rower and three novices, they were a bit outclassed in their heat by three Uni crews and trailed in last.
Women's Masters B 4+. They placed second (of three) in a straight final, partly helped by a spectacular crab by Star that left their boat sideways on the course.
Karen and Lou competed for the first time together in a double (at Masters C) and a few steering issues saw them at the back of the field (this wasn’t helped by the copious amounts of pond weed in Lane 1!).
IM3 4x-. Up against two Uni crews and a Leicester Uni/Club composite, Lost by under a length to the Leicester Uni crew.
Masters D 2x-. Running on empty from the IM34x-, trailed behind the others in what was described as “a tired row”.
Sunday 6th June
Novice Single Scull. Despite a really strong row (in only his second single race) Josh just failed to get third and a spot in the repêchage.
Novice Double. Again, a good race but again, without success.
Mixed Novice 4+ boat. A slow start but a strong push was pulling them back into the field but unfortunately came last.
Women's Masters C 4+, Unfortunately our ladies were left to bring up the rear.
Mixed Quad – IM3. We were utterly outclassed, giving Lincoln the easiest win they are ever likely to get.
Masters Novice 2x. This was to be Rob’s first ever race in a double and his main concern was to finish upright and dry. In the event, they accomplished this easily and in doing so took the win!
