Queens have picked up their first victories of the 2011 championships. On day two the men’s senior 2- became the first QUB crew since 1979 to win a men’s senior sweep event. The Men’s Senior 4x came second to Skibbereen (the country’s top sculling club). Later in the morning the men’s inter 8+ recovered from a disappointing row in the men’s 4+ on Thursday, to pick up the second pot of the day and took the inter tile, last won by QUB in 2009.
Tomorrow we are looking forward to the Women’s Novice and Intermediate 8+s, the Men’s Intermediate 2+, Men’s Novice 4+ and the Men’s Senior 8+s (where UCD is the highly fancied crew).
