So, today has been another amazing day of weather. Slightly windier but another stunning day of sunshine. The morning kicked off with the ladies, with both teams having a brilliant row. The ladies B came fourth, with an amazing row, leaving them very happy. The ladies A came through again, winning their heat for the second time – fantastic! That moved them into group F for the final.
The men also had some fantastic results with the B team holding their own and finishing mid group which was great. The men’s A also held their position, coming in the top 5 in group D and setting themselves up to challenge the top crews in the final.
The wind died away again for the final races, and the atmosphere was electric. Both the men’s and ladies had 12 groups – A to L, and with it being the finals we were ready to give it everything we had left in the tank.
The ladies B came 8th in group I which was great, and the ladies A had another storming row, coming 2nd, narrowly beaten by Weymouth. That means they moved up from group H to second in group F – amazing!
The men’s B had another great row, holding their own and finishing middle of their group. The A team had a good strong row and a battle for the top spots. They came in in a fantastic 5th place! Amazing!
Everyone enjoyed themselves completely, the weather was brilliant and the team spirit has been fantastic. Rafting up at the end with some (many!) bottles of fizz was very special. We are so lucky to be here!
Official results to follow once there is space to get near the board! Presentations are underway for the winners of each group. Falmouth won both the men’s and the women’s races – amazing!
Now it’s time to celebrate and relax, dinner shortly and no doubt a few drinks before we are tucked up in bed with our cocoa – as instructed by our lovely rowing captain Lynn.
Photos to follow – more battery needed!
