National Schools Regatta & Junior Sculling Regatta 2021
Updated: Jul 20
National Schools Regatta was the first race back after the pandemic so it had the added challenge of crews having not raced together or against the competition. Held over Saturday and Sunday, the day started with time trials which lead to finals in the afternoon.
On Saturday the two senior quads both progressed to their respective A finals where the championship quad took bronze and the second quad silver.
On Sunday the J16 quads both progressed to their respective A finals where the A quad came 2nd and the B quad came 3rd. The J18 pair came 9th in the championship pairs event.
Overall, National Schools was a great success, and everyone enjoyed being able to race side by side with other crews again.
