It’s a bit of a different day on the islands today, we’ve lost the sun so the shorts are packed and the woolly hats back out! The seas look quite rough for those on the Scillonian…so everyone is envious of those who are flying.
The official results are now in! A full report will follow once we’re back on the mainland, but for now we are extremely proud to report the following:
A team: 62nd – 6. Sarah Gall, 5. Meg Keegan, 4. Katie Turner, 3. Helen Atrill, 2. Charity Phillips, 1. Heidi Brodribb, Cox. Bill Stacey-Norris

We had a great time celebrating last night once the boats were packed away. They were manhandled very successfully off the beach and onto their trailers – who needs trolleys hey?! The meal at the Kavorna was very tasty, and we then went our separate ways, some to the campsite, some only made it as far as The Atlantic across the road, and others off to the Turks Head on St Agnes. But we did all have one thing in common, and that was that we made the most of some celebratory drinks – very well deserved I think!
So, it’s been an amazing weekend, we couldn’t have hoped for better conditions, and the results prove how good our teams really are. Huge congratulations to all that rowed and to our fantastic coxes. Thanks also to our two captains, Katie and Chris, our rowing captain Lynn and chairman Simon, and to those that have coached and coxed us in training, and of course a massive thank you to all our supporters and the rest of the club – we most certainly couldn’t have done it without you!
