Junior Indoor Rowing Competition

Lindsay Flockhart writes........

 

St Andrew Boat Club took part in the first ‘Edinburgh Junior Indoor Rowing Competition’ at Edinburgh University's CSE on Saturday 25th January. This was contested between ourselves, George Heriot's School and George Watson's College.

 

Whilst there were no wins this time, for our athletes, congratulations go to all who took part. There were a few hard fought second places and a few personal bests. The day finished with 2 relay races, which were very keenly contested and with SABC finishing second in both. Lets hope this is the first of many such collaborations between the Edinburgh junior rowing community!

 

A big thanks also goes to Colin Williamson and his team at Edinburgh University for hosting us, and to all who helped organise a smoothly run and fun filled day!

Castle Semple Regatta

From roving reporter Neilia:

Another great day for SABC at Castle Semple Regatta last Saturday. Despite the rough conditions, many crews made their finals and performed at a high standard. Lizzie Buchan won WJ13 1X!


Big thank you to Ailien Pallot and Lindsay Flockhart for making sure everything ran smoothly from the bank and to Chalky for towing. 

Looking forward to Scot Champs next weekend with a huge SABC entry. Follow @StAndrewBC on twitter to get live results throughout the weekend.

 

Finally, here's a video which summarises the day at Semple.

 

There were also a number of strong second places from the Juniors. This really illustrates the progress we have made as the SABC Juniors can bring home medals and close races from every regatta we go to. It shows that if you stick in and train hard over the winter, good performance in the summer will come your way. 

 

Upcoming races

If you want to take part in the following race, please email Iain Rice directly:

 

July 20-21st British Rowing Championships (Nottingham Watersports Centre)

We might send crews to this event. This would be selected crews only (those who have had experience of racing at open age group level and are good enough to justify going all that way). There are certainly some of our Juniors who are in this bracket! If you would like to go, please speak to Iain Rice to see if you are of a standard to race at this top event.
