The day started well as the rain held off, but by mid morning it was apparent that the wind was getting stronger.
Our J14 girls quad were racing up at J15 and put up a good performance despite the tough competition and the waves crashing against the side of the boat.
They completed the 1500m course in a time of 6:31.71minutes.
Our J16 girls coxed 4 took to water an hour later to finish 4th in their heat in a time of 6:29.80minutes. They had a good start but gradually saw the 3 faster crews pull away.
The final 3 positions in the heat were closely contested with Leicester managing to edge their way to the front.
Unfortunately after this race, racing was suspended as boating became very difficult due to waves crashing over the landing stages.
It was hoped that there would be a possibility of racing being resumed in the afternoon but unfortunately it wasn’t to be.
The composite girls 8 did not get to race.
