Langstone U14/U16/U18 Junior Sprint Regatta was a huge success.
Report from Jackie, the Junior Co-Ordinator at Langstone Cutters Gig Club.
“Thank you so much for the teams who came to support the first ever U14/U16/U18 CPGA Junior event in Hampshire. Jack, Chrissy and Jane from Rame, Sarah and Kevin from Bridport, Tony from Portland, Brian and Jo from Swanage and your wonderful happy crews and loyal supporters! What a pleasure to welcome you all and host this inaugural event in the most perfect location and we were so lucky with the weather.
Some superb rowing from all teams with Bridport winning the U18 final, Rame winning the U16 Final, Langstone winning the U16 Plate Final and U16 All Girls crew and Langstone winning the U14 Final and U14 All Girls crew.
Great to see new friendships forming and watching these young rowers who are our future putting their heart and soul into their rowing. Especially rewarding to see our older juniors reforming into U18 crews for this event with seriously strong rowers who are already rowing in A and B teams!
Special mention also to Swanage U14 who rowed two hard races with some very young but keen rowers and to Portland who put out a very strong all boys squad who we need to watch out for!
