Mount's Bay Men's B & C battle to the mark.

The rescheduled Mount’s Bay Regatta took place on Saturday 5th of June. With the weather threatening to rain just before the coxswain’s meeting, it held off and the Men’s A started the days proceedings.

Truro Ladies do their Stretches...

With a short first leg (4:42) the first turn was a sharp course change. Mount’s Bay Men’s A turned first with the bow rower tossing, follwed by Melusine (Zennor). Taking 3 lengths on the first mark, Mount’s Bay stretched their lead as they crossed the line. The Men’s B took to the water for the second race with a shock battle for first place between Monut’s Bay Men’s B & C crew. The C crew made up of older veterans, developing juniors, and several retired rowers (6 years was the last time in the boat) the C crew had mighty start and took the lead, but as the crews approached the first mark the B’s just managed to reel in enough of a lead to get the water.

The Under 16’s then had their race from the second mark to the finish line. A short sprint saw Lark (Coverack) take first place after a hard fought battle with St. Elvan (Porthleven).

The Ladies A race had a brilliant battle between Kensa (Mount’s Bay) & Brisons (Cape Cornwall), Brisons made up of three Cape rowers, one Mount’s Bay rower & two Falmouth rowers pushed Mount’s Bay all the way to the line. The Ladies B again saw a tight race between Kensa and Azook (Hayle), also made up of two Falmouth rowers.

The Under 14’s had a straight sprint along the side of the iconic St Michael’s Mount with Lark taking a well deserved victory. The Veterans race saw Melusine (Zennor) take the Men’s title and Kensa take the Ladies. The mixed was a hard fought battle between two Mount’s Bay crews with Zennor in third.
