Good day for the row­ers

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

WELL done to all the Wick­low crews who com­peted in the two-day Dalkey Regatta over the week­end at Scots­man’s Bay Sandy­cove.

Wick­low Row­ing Club’s un­der-12s recorded their first ever win at the event. Con­grat­u­la­tions girl. The club’s un­der-14s also en­joyed another terrific win.

The club’s two un­der-16s boys crews fin­ished sec­ond and third and the un­der-16 girls were also third.

Wick­low Row­ing Club’s un­der-18 boys were only beaten in to sec­ond by less than a me­ter, and like­wise for the Ju­nior ladies who fin­ished a very tight race in sec­ond spot.

The In­ter­me­di­ate men were lead­ing all the way un­til they lost an oar and were pipped on the line, get­ting silver for their trou­bles.

The club’s Ju­nior men had worse luck when they broke an oar on the first turn, while the Se­nior ladies fin­ished came home sec­ond in a very close race.

With a lit­tle luck and hard train­ing all these sec­onds can eas­ily turn to wins. Wick­low Row­ing Club will com­pete in the regatta in two weeks hosted by St Pa­trick’s Ringsend.

Gold for the un­der-16 boys.

Sec­ond for Wick­low Row­ing Club’s Ju­nior ladies.
