The Isle of Wight Rowing Forum Annual Junior Indoor Rowing Competition. Sunday, 27th November, Ryde Rowing Club.
Wightlink sponsored Ryde Rowing Club hosted the 5th Isle of Wight Rowing Forum Junior Indoor Rowing Competition on Sunday (27th November) at their Appley Park Clubhouse.
The annual event is open to any Junior/under 18 members of the three Island Rowing Clubs – Ryde, Shanklin and Newport – with the newly formed Ryde School Boat Club also invited to attend this year. All four Clubs were represented with a total of thirty-four junior oarsman and woman taking part.
There were two stages to the event, in line with British Rowing’s guidelines and as used at the National Junior Indoor Rowing competition, at which we hope many of these athletes will compete early next year.
All the Juniors were divided into boys and girls and age groups and competed as individuals over two events – distance rowed in a fixed time and a 250m sprint. The results of these two competitions were combined with Medals awarded for first, second and third places in the combined result.
After completion of the individual competitions a relay was held, over 3000m, in teams of six, drawn from the hat from all four Clubs to round off a great day’s competition.
