Bideford Blues in Plymouth

Bideford Blues battle the wind in Plymouth Regatta

North Devon Gazette

The Bideford Blues travelled across Devon to take part in the Plymouth Rowing Regatta last week and, despite the tough conditions, the junior rowers came home with some fine results.

Competitors were greeted by wind and rain but, undeterred, Bideford’s Finley Cloak kicked off the racing in the MJ14 1x by coming home in second place. This was followed by a third for Sophie Evans in the WJ18 1x and second in the WNov 1x.

The Blues could then celebrate a comfortable win for Harry Fanson in the MJ18 1x. Lexi Reeves battled hard for her 3rd place in the WJ15 1x and it was another 2nd for Finley when he stepped up a couple of age groups and doubled up with Harry in the MJ17 2x.

Well done to all, especially Harry, who is certainly clocking up the points to go towards the end of season championships.
