Portadown Regatta

Following the fun and success had at last year’s regatta, it was decided, by popular demand, to return for this years event, with the guys entered in the Intermediate 8+, Novice 8+, Novice 4+ & Novice 1x categories and the ladies in the WNovice 4+.

Despite a very early train journey and the initial bad weather, Queens showed what they were made of with the Men winning all their sweep categories convincingly. The novice 4 event in particular was a great race with the underdogs, Queens B, beating Queens A in the final!

Credit must also be given to the ladies’ Novice 4+ who had an well deserved victory over UUC in their heat but were unfortunately beaten by a strong BRC crew in the final.

Overall a brilliant day was had by all and we will most likely return next year to enjoy more great racing.
