Itchen Junior Regatta – Saturday 5th October 2019
An enthusiastic squad of young rowers representing Christchurch Rowing Club competed at the annual Junior Regatta hosted by Southampton’s Itchen Imperial Rowing Club on Saturday 5th October. Bright and unseasonably agreeable conditions, crowds of enthusiastic competitors and plenty of vocal support provided the ingredients for a good day’s racing downstream of the 800m long toll-bridge on the lower reaches of the River Itchen. Spectators and supporters were treated to some close and exciting racing.
Fifteen Christchurch crews contested twelve of the forty events, winning eight outright with two of those being all Christchurch finals. The remaining four races in which Christchurch crews competed were no less exciting providing valuable race experience for those involved.
