World Champs Day 1

First day of competition at Stranraer dawned with a gentle wind blowing up the course from the start, and an overcast sky in contrast to the bright sun the day before: perfect rowing conditions. We were joined by the Princess Royal who met skiff crews and organisers, started the 60+ women final and presented medals to the medal winners in the 60+ Women Race, our first final of the week. North Berwick took that bronze, Dundrum just pipping them to silver by less than half a second, and Eastern ARC taking the first gold of the championships. Eastern also took a gold in the Men Under 40, Sketrick took the ladies under 40 gold, and Dundrum won the Men 60+.

Notable results further down the field came from Glasgow, Lake Champlain, Alsnmouth and Crail.
