North Berwick Regatta 2019- The Results

Flat seas? Not what we are used to at North Berwick, but we were faced with near perfect conditions for the challenge that is the annual series of races around the Island of Craigleith.

FULL RESULTS are available elsewhere on the wold wide web. As ever there was entertaining racing to be had throughout the fleet, with everyone enjoying the endurance of a lengthy race with a variety of challenges. Honours were widely shared throughout the fleet, with wins for the Hosts in mens open, mixed open and Men 50+; wins for Broughty Ferry in Ladies Open and 40+. Troon came through from the west and were delighted to go home with a gold medal in the mixed 45+. Eastern won in the men 40+, a crew of novices from Eskmuthe took home a gold medal in their class, a first win for this East Lothian club at the North Berwick Regatta. Another East Lothian Club, Boatie Blest, took home the gold in the ladies 50+ Crail won the 240+. So that was ten races, with seven different winners, a very pleasing outcome.

In addition of course there was a bronze medal for Alnmouth, representing England for the day in the mens open, and a silver for a Rest of the World crew in the mixed novice, that crew containing rowers from Kinghorn, Broughty Ferry and Bradford. Outside the medals, but very welcome none the less were Dunbar, Arran and Queensferry.
