Wimbleball regatta 2023

The second regatta of the season was hosted by Wimbleball Rowing Club up on Exmoor and once again Paignton took a large squad. The club had crews in almost category from J12 up to Masters and singles, doubles, quads, fours and eights.  The club recorded three wins but that belies the number of fantastic results across the board with many crews extremely competive. There was plenty of close racing with many rowers feeling satisfied with the quality of their rows which all points to the potential of more wins as the season develops. There is a real depth in the club at the moment with numerous events featuring multiple crews which is driving a friendly rivalry and pushing everyone to improve.  One of the highlights for the club was the ability to put afloat both Men’s and Women’s eights against the hosts. Next weekend there is a break before a run of five consecutive regattas.

Totnes regatta 2023

A fantastic day of rowing at Totnes to kick off the West of England Amateur Rowing Association - WEARA season. We had our largest ever contingent of rowers participating along with supporters and volunteers. Unfortunately no wins but eight second places! 

The second day got us a win in the mixed sen C, J 15 double sculls. The most important thing about this weekend was it was filled with a great club feeling of supporting each other.
