A clean sweep for the Ladies at the Crouch Cup, Fastest Gig and Fastest Ladies Crew, well done girls!
Sunday 3rd July, the sun was shining and a lovely day for the Crouch Cup race hosted by South Wooden Ferrers. A new course this year which was just in excess of 4 miles. Starting at the Brandy hole, rowing approx 2 miles up river with a port turn at the no 8 buoy then a sprint and navigation through the moored yachts back to the SWF yacht club. LTRC mens crew (Pierre Therrien, John Riddle, Mark Chinnery, Gordon Bamber and Gary Fisher) put on a great performance leading all the way and were first accross the finish line, Brightlingsea were a close second but keeping up the pace all the way and hot on their heels, were the LTRC ladies crew (Pat Woodbury, Sally Jackson-Robins, Anne Howe, Michelle Holmes and Sue Alder). Their powerful performance and united crew rowed home to take FIRST place in all catergories on handicap. Winning the Crouch Shield, First ladies crew and First Spirit Gig. It was the first time the crew had raced together and Sally’s first ever race so a very happy crew. A brilliant day with a great, friendly atmosphere. We love rowing!
