Superior fitness and skill combined with a relentless training regime perhaps….. but the two Tees teams also have to thank the dedication and skill of coach and cox Stuart Barlow for their impressive wins at the Northern League Skills event.

Details of all our May winners and notable performances below. Congratulations to all!

Yes it was a busy weekend for members of Tees Rowing Club, not only did they send a host of rowers to Durham Regatta but also despatched a group of highly competitive crews to the National Masters Championships at Holme Pierrepont in Nottingham....

"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.
