The weekend dawned with many expectant glances at the weather forecasts, especially after two other events were casualties of the weather. The forecast improved and the event went ahead, despite rain forecast late. This was the first time the club had run a Regatta style event instead of a pursuit race from Truro to Mylor.
The clubs gathered, with many local clubs rowing over and the coxes meeting went as scheduled. The course was the traditional kite shaped with the start off Pill Creek with the finish off the beach. This was designed to allow the spectators to be able view as much of the race as possible.
The weather remained overcast all day and some excellent racing was had, with a full programme of races. The results are tabulated below:
C – Denotes declared composite crews
Overall winners were Roseland.
The weather held and a fine days racing was had, in what turned out to be a small local Regatta all taken in a good spirit.
The Club wishes to thank the National Trust and Mr Symonds for allowing us to use the venue. Sponsors included Carrick Leisure, Ferris Garage, Truro Glass and Sarah Wyld (Handmade celebration cakes).
