An interesting combination of oarsmen…
… in the Mens Senior Pairs saw over +50 Masters Oarsman Pete Jacobs and Junior Oarsman Will Gibbs take full advantage in the relaxation of Hants and Dorset status rules at Ryde on Saturday, making a late entry they held off their clubs “A” Crew to win by two length. But Pete Jacobs had to make do with second place in the Masters +50 when coming second to unbeaten Lymington. Christchurch remain unbeaten in the Mens Junior Fours and rowed up a status with a late entry at Shanklin to check the BTC Junior Senior Four who were clear winners at Ryde.
The Mens Senior Fours is likely to develop into an interesting contest between Coalporters and BTC after they shared the Island points, keeping the Coalporters one point ahead. The Ladies Senior Fours, so far dominated by Itchen Imperial’s K Taylor, R Daniels, P Lewis, J Bull (Stk) L Gooch (Cox), could see changes on the longer course at Milford on Sea next Saturday which could prove more to the liking of the Coalporters and BTC who have been leading the chasing pack.
Southampton Ladies +40 Masters Four remain unbeaten with A Davies, F Walbridge, W Hartland, A Saunders (Stk) L Redwood (Cox) as do Itchen Imperial Mens +40 Masters with S Taylor, R Benham, L Rayment, I Barnaby (Stk) O Barnaby (Cox). Wins at both regattas see Westover Novice Men C Stone, C Ranson, B Chesterman, D Bihari (Stk) L Perry (Cox) move to Junior Status next time out and Coalporters will have to re-organise their Ladies Novice crews after winning their second race of the season at Shanklin with a changed crew.
