 Many thanks to everyone who contributed to make our regatta a success at the weekend. It was great to see everyone helping out during our regatta and working as a team to get boats loaded and unloaded efficiently.


In addition, our competitors were most successful over the two days of racing. A big congratulation to Lisa Greissl and Deborah Summer who gained their first medal, a silver, in the WS10002x on Saturday and to our junior boys, Max Weinzerl, Louis Travers and Ben Roberts who gained a gold medal in the MD4x and to Ben who gained a gold medal in the MD2x on Sunday.
