Newport Regatta Report 2015

Posted on Posted in 2015 race reports

The Hants and Dorset Championship Regatta reached it’s mid season with the two day regatta at Newport over the weekend. Once again Itchen Imperial dominated the Mens and Ladies Senior Fours but the Southampton Coalporters seem to be running into good form as they challenge hard for points

In the Mens Senior Fours Coalporters pressed hard but Itchen held them off for a 1 length victory at the finish whilst the margin was even closer in the Ladies Junior Fours where only 3 ft separated the two clubs. In the Mens Junior Fours it was BTC who maintained the form shown last weekend at Swanage with a convincing win over Christchurch and Westover won the re-rowed Junior Senior Fours Final after clashing with BTC the first time around.


Another strong row by Itchen in the Mens+40 Masters Fours keeps their Championship challenge on course and an inspired race by Southampton +40 Ladies Masters Four, Siobhan Mitchell, Ann Saunders, Wendy Hartland, Fiona Walbridge (Stk) Lisa Redwood (Cox) when beating Championship leaders Christchurch by 1 length keeps their hopes of South Coast Championship representation honours alive also.
