Congratulations to Youlie, Kim, Les and Brian who rowed brilliantly under Mark"s superb coxing in the mixed novice four. They got through their heat, beating a much more experienced crew, only to be beaten in the next round by the eventual runners-up.

Mark also had a fantastic row in the single sculls, only being defeated by half a canvas (3 feet) on the line. Everyone involved on the day were a credit to the club.

Many thanks also go to Exmouth Rowing Club for the loan of the boat and blades, and for their continuing support.

The Club has been congratulated by the Captains of five rowing clubs and the West of England Rowing Association on its performance at the regatta. The way everyone rowed will be an inspiration to the club.

With a brand new boat arriving in August, the club would like to build on this success by getting both a men's and a women's crew out practising together regularly.
