"Tees Maids" started off the day in fine style, beating "Darc Green” to win one racebut their male colleagues failed to win a single race in the unaccustomed sweep event.
“Somewhat WRecK” were indeed somewhat wrecked by a seat which suddenly failed to slide properly in a race which they were winning. 
“Bring back sculling” they said in a failed attempt to gain sympathy. It was noted that they won the interrace bacon buttie eating competition by a wide margin.
A great day out in sunny weather and full marks to the catering staff at Chester le Street. Thanks to Stu for coxing.
