RSSBC Girls J4X (near side) and J14 Octople (yellow)
We were greeted by a very pleasant sight in Nottingham: sunshine and a very light headwind – a pretty rare occurrence!
The format of the day was to hold a time trial, after which the crews were divided up into heats of similar speed crews. For example, there could be a girls’ J18 Quad, a J14 Octople, a J15 2nd VIII etc etc, which makes for some very exciting racing indeed! The main point of the day was to introduce crews to multi-lane racing, a very different discipline to the time trialling of the winter months.
Results for RSSBC were strong, with four of our VIIIs in the top seven: 1st, 2nd, J16 and J15.
The Boat Club is now in to serious competition mode, with regattas most weekend leading up to National Schools on 24th – 26th May 24th, the culmination of the season for the majority of our boys and girls.
