September winning crews and notable performances
Not a lot of September results, but some great ones!
I'm afraid I don't have crew lists, but the Cooper quad raced at World Masters in Belgium (10-13 September) and came away with two Silvers, in D4x and E4x, as well as a Bronze when they came together with three members of DARC to race a scratch E8. Excellent work as always gents, well done.
York Autumn Sculls (19 September): Win for MasG 4x of Paul Reevell, Dick Marlow, Bob Bainbridge and Chris Kenyon in Mas D/E/G
Boston Marathon (20 September): a fantastic achievement for Lucy Radley, the first W.LTA 1x to ever complete the course and she did so beating 15 able-bodied boats on raw times (including doubles and a quad!). Being the first W.LTA 1x to complete the 50km marathon, Lucy now holds the course record - one I'm sure she'll be aiming to beat next year!
Don't forget to start sending me you October results!
Final Round of 2015 Northern Sunday League Competition

October 2015 Minihead Results
This month's minihead saw a bumper entry of 27 boats (72 competitors!) in the run-up to the Tees head races next weekend. Lovely conditions though lots of debris on the water, and some very close finishes. Thank you to the Vet Men for running the event with the addition of the delicious corned beef pie we have come to know and love from Marian Olver, and some extremely tasty brownies baked by Fiona Ventress!
