Worlds Day 2

Tuesday started driech, but decent sea and wind conditions made for enjoyable racing. With poor visibility there was a risk that racing might need to be changed to time trials….. Mass races would not be started if the coxes were unable to see the turn marks 1km down the course. However visibility improved, so a full days racing could take place.

All racing was under the new format including repechage. With four heats in each of the events raced, the first three in each heat went straight into the final, and the next three in each heat went into the repechage for a second chance to reach the final….. the first three in the repechage going through. This of course adds another tight race into the programme. The repechage results were as follows:

Men 40+ Repechage KYC, Coigach and Orkney went through to the final

Women 40+ Repechage Woudrichem, Burghead and Eskmuthe went through to the final.

Mixed 50+ Repechage Dundrum, Alnmouth and North Berwick go through to final on Wednesday

There were two finals held on Tuesday, the Men 40+ and Women 40+. Excellent to see a new gold medal winning club, in Broughty Ferry whose women dominated their final. Congratulations to Dundrum who won the Men 40+ final. Special mention for a great result from local Hippo Coastal Rowing Club from Gareleston, who came 12th in the final, in their fist ever regatta as a club.
