Poole Regatta, Saturday, 13th June.
It was a busy weekend for the Wightlink sponsored Ryde Rowing Club as they competed at the Hants & Dorset Championship Regatta at Poole on the Saturday (13th June) and the Wessex Junior Regatta on the Sunday (14th June).
Inevitably the IW Festival reduced the numbers competing from the Club at Poole Regatta but in spite of this the Ryde Club maintained their good start to the season returning to the Island with two wins.
The Club continued its domination of the Menís Senior Sculls with Mike Jenner winning a close race from club rival Ian Hayden who finished 2nd. Ian then teamed up with Russell Page to race in the Menís Senior Pairs, where, while well in contention, they impeded a crew from Itchen Imperial Rowing Club resulting in a justified disqualification and their first defeat in this event this season.
Russell Page made amends in the Double sculls, winning comfortably after teaming up with Novice Sculler and exchange student Florrin Behrle, who was competing for the Club for the last time for a while as he returns home to Germany next week.
Florrin also raced in the Menís Novice Four with Donnatt Debrecan, Curtis Lowe, John Gedling and Cox Dale Buckett Ė who continued to show improvement, winning their heat and finishing 4th in the final Ė their best result of the season to date.
