Young oarsmen and women enjoy success at Itchen.
Shanklin Sandown Rowing club enjoyed more success at Itchen Junior regatta last weekend.
The club recorded seven wins and five runners up spots with the girls J13 coastal quad of Annabelle Steward, Poppy Lawrence, Evie Crew, Izzy Bounds & Esme Walters overcoming first race nerves to take the club’s first win of the day, whilst the J14 girls crew of Immy Burfitt, Ella Haydon, Freya Jones, Layla Katirewa & Walters followed up their victory at the South Coast last weekend with another convincing win.
The mixed crew of Adam Farley, Layla Katirewa, Carter Horrix & Louis Sheasby took a comfortable win in the boy’s J14 event and the girls J16 crew of Alannah Denness, Layla Katirewa, Beth Katirewa & Esme Walters, in their last race together at this age category, won by three lengths, with both crews racing in river quads for the first time.
There were wins in the J14 & J15 singles for Carter Horrix, with Louis Sheasby runner up on both occasions and Beth Katirewa won her first sculling event, winning the girls J15 sculls race.
Ella Haydon and Layla Katirewa also competed in the double for the first time securing an excellent runner up spot in the J14 event, a great achievement as they were competing in a coastal double against crews racing in the finer river double.
