World Rowing Masters Regatta

Racing at the World Rowing Masters Regatta in Hazewinkel, Pauline Peel and Helen Bloor (Nottingham RC) won their Women's D pairs event by seven hundredths of a second.

Dickie Clarke reports on the Veteran Men's races:

The Veteran Men entered an F coxed four of Mark Alloway, David Hickey, Dickie Clarke, Tim Sanders and cox Otto Rodd. We were fourth, with an Occoquan crew first, Quintin second, an international crew (but mostly from Port Marly, Paris) third. We were 4.62 seconds behind the winners and just 0.12 seconds behind the third-placed boat.

We also entered a composite G eight with Geoff Peel (Quintin), Tim Lincoln (Henley), Klaus Riekemann (Minerva Bath) and Tony Stokes (Broxbourne).  This crew came second by 4.55 seconds to an international composite crew from the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
We had good rows in both races and felt that we had performed satisfactorily against a very high standard of opposition.
