WJ14x Ellie and Elspeth in action
What a glorious Spring day! Sunday 3 Jun gave us all a fabulous day’s rowing on the rowing lake at Peterborough Rowing Club with Lincoln Rowing Centre being well represented across the age categories. Ellie Monaghan and Elspeth Jolly performed really well to win their heat in the W Junior 14s double sculls and come 3rd in the final against strong opposition. Rowing in the Men’s singles, Joss Cope faired well, winning his heat and achieving 2nd place in the final. Milan van Heerden was really unlucky to detach his wing rigger in the first few metres of his heat – really good skills for staying dry, Milan!! Dean Harrison in the single and the Men’s Masters D 4, Jimmy Sockell, Dean Harrison, John Dyer and Garry Speed coxed by Lewis Colbourne, all raced well, giving their all against some stiff opposition. Also competing for LRC were Bruce Margetts in a Lincoln/Peterborough composite 8+ on Saturday, coming a close second in the final, and repeating the fine performance on Sunday, finishing second in the Mas E/F final, once again in a Peterborough/Lincoln composite. And Jo Canton who won the W Mas D eight final with a great row in a Peterborough Rowing Club crew. Well done to Tom Westbrook and Louron Pratt who won the Sunday coxless 4 rowing for Bedford RC. Congratulations to all Lincoln Rowing Centre members who competed in this superb regatta – keep flying the flag for Lincoln!
