Another spectacular Christchurch Rowing Regatta on a warm and sunny Saturday produced some surprises for the many participants and spectators, not least in the weather, with torrential rain only ten minutes after completion of prize giving sending the dispersing crowds running for cover.
A win at Novice Mes for K. Mersey, Harry Lawton-Hurst, G. Robinson, D. Parker(str), A. Chadwick(cox) and at J16 for E. Brad, L. Perry, O. Humphries, R. Ashley-East(str), A. Horn(cox) who beat Shanklin.
J16 Boys’ crew Kit Mersey, Harry Lawton-Hurst, George Robinson, David Parker(str), Katya Cherskova(cox), fought it out to the line with BTC to clinch first place, with another win from Jaz Hunt in the Ladies Junior Sculls.

CRC Cycle Fundraiser
What a brilliant day - thank you to all who participated. We raised over £6000 which has allowed us to put £3000 towards a new boat and donate £1000 to each of the following local charities - Christchurch Food Bank, Macmillan Caring Locally and Tourettes Action.
Invasion of the Job Snatchers
Airing this spring - The BBC3 documentary 'Invasion of the Job Snatchers'. Filmed locally, one of the participants had a go at rowing and bought the film crew along to record the event.
A rare break in the weather gave way to a great day of racing. We had two wins - the JW16 4x+ and the Novice Girls with other crews placing high.
