Tees athletes qualified their respective boats for next year's

Olympic Games in Rio, at the World Rowing

Championships in Aiguebelette, France.

43 People, including 13 Durham ARC visitors, dashed up river to Yarm in a flurry of singles , doubles, quads and an eight on a perfect windless, slightly cloudy day.

The sole representative from Tees at the third Northern League 2015 event  enjoyed the fruits of their recent sweep training by winning two races at Hexham. 

Chastened by their previous poor performance the team had asked for coaching from Philip Searle, indulging also in video analyses of their performances. 

“After considerable training, we could only detect technique faults through dramatically slowing the action down” explained a grizzled team member with tongue firmly in cheek.

We will have Tees Regatta T-shirts available to buy on the day of the regatta for £15.

These t-shirts have been designed by some of the finest creative minds in the junior squad (Dawson & Goodes), printed on high quality fabric by a local company to allow you to look fabulous, not only on regatta day, but also for weeks and months (and in some cases, decades (I've seen some of your training kit)).

They come in a range of sizes from small to large and can be purchased from the stall at the regatta.

Funds raised will go towards the junior coaching fund.
