Newport Regatta, Saturday, 6th June.
The Men’s Senior A Crew of Russell Page, Mike Jenner, Ben Ade and Ian Hayden – with Bryony Reeve coxing maintained their recent impressive form dominating their heat and going on to comfortably win the final. The Men’s Senior B Crew of Mark Singleton, Nick Pike, Sam Cocker and Stuart Johnson with Max Reeve in the coxswains seat were unfortunate to be drawn against their A Crew in the heat – or they to may well have reached the final.
The Men’s Junior Senior Fours of Callum Lowe, Tom Clark with Novices Florrin Behrle, and John Gedling making up the crew – and Dale Buckett coxing did exceptionally well to reach their final where they finished 3rd behind Shanklin and Coalporters – but can claim a share in Shanklin’s win as they borrowed Ryde coxswain Bryony Reeve to steer their boat.
The Men’s Novice Four of John Gedling, James Cleary, Curtis Lowe and Donatt Debrecan with Dale Buckett in the Coxswians seat once again also finished 3rd having maintained the progress made in recent weeks to reach a third consecutive Novice Final.
Ryde dominated the Men’s Senior Sculls – with all three scullers in the final coming Ryde – where Ian Hayden, benefiting from the straight course and calm conditions, achieved a first ever Senior Sculls win – with Mike Jenner in second and Nick Pike in third.
Coastal Junior Sculler Tom Clark sculled well to reach the final but will be disappointed to have to finished 2nd after winning in previous weeks. However Novice Sculler Florrin Behrle will be pleased with his performance in reaching the final where he finished 3rd. Ryde other Novice Scullers – Callum Lowe, Stu Johnson and Sam Cocker, in his first sculling race all competed well but failed to make the final.
1) Winning Men’s Senior Sculler – Ian Hayden.
2) Winning Men’s Senior Four – Russell Page, Mike Jenner, Ben Ade, Ian hayden, Bryony Reeve
