Berwick Rowing Club

Sunday 5th June saw nine rowers and one Cox travel the 100 miles from TRC to support Berwick as they organised an Explore Rowing Northern League event for the first time. What a fine job their friendly club members made of the organisation!

The ladies crew consisted of Rosie Cooper (stroke), Lindsey Sparrow-Kielty, Fiona Motrimer and Victoria Dektereff with Kathryn Graham coxing. The Open was as scratch crew of Len Small (stroke), Ernie Bland, Josie Watson and John Pattison again with Kathryn as Cox.

Each crew came away with two wins out of four races, the open crew losing a close race to the overall league leaders from Tyne RC. The ladies managed to equal the two wins by beating the host crew Berwick, who had previously beaten them in the last race of the day.
