Shanklin Sandown Rowing Club

Two wins at Southampton Head Race!

Shanklin Sandown Rowing Club took five crews to Southampton for the coastal fours head last weekend, the last head race before the regatta season starts in May.

The race, in two divisions, took the form of a time trial over four kilometres of the river Itchen.

The Junior men’s four of Arlo Adds, Carter Horrix, Louis Sheasby, Fred Giemza-Pipe & Esme Walters secured top spot in their event with a convincing win, finishing over thirty seconds ahead of the second-placed crew.

The Boy’s J16 quad scull of Tobin Green, Layla Katirewa, Horrix, Sheasby & Walters, also had a commanding win in division two, winning by over a minute and recording the second fastest time of the division.

The mixed master’s crew of Anna Scott, Paul Gamble, Kev Faithfull & John Langbourne secured a third-place finish, whilst the club’s Novice ladies four of Lisa Atkin, Sam Travis, Anna Scott & Evie Selway finished in fourth place. This in their first outing in this combination and there was also a fourth-place finish for the Master’s ladies’ crew of Jane Denby-Roach, Stella Gamble, Hayley Owen & Lisa Robertson.

The club would like to thank Ryde Rowing club for lending the club a boat for the event.
