East Lothian and Borders Championships

October 3, 2011

A group of around 20 made the journey to the fresh water resovoir at Whitadder to compete and socialise with our nearest neighbours. Boats from North Berwick and Dunbar attended along with crews from St. Abbs, Eyemouth and a under 19s team from Duns. Races took the shape of sprints with a buoy turn. Port seton Recorded wins in Mixed open, ladies open, and Mens and Ladies over 35. Our yougest rower Leo Enjoyed his first ever row and Victory as part of our under 19s team along with Maia, Cayryn and Kathryn. North Berwick dominated the mens open beating Port Seton and Dunbar and also recorded a good win in the mixed 50+.  The day was topped off with a chance to row in other boats to check out oar systems, footboards and how the other boats differ slightly. All three boats had a different oar system and different oars along with different footboards. A great thanks has to be said to all who organised the event in the short time and all who took part. A great time was had by all.
