Our Under 16 crew and their cox arrived at Newquay for the CPGA Junior County Championships in pretty miserable weather. The hardy bunch that they are, were not put off and awaited their racing.
Our lads were placed in the fourth heat and after a good start settled into 2nd position which they maintained throughout the race to finish 2nd of 6, resulting in a place in the semi finals. Our crew raced in the 2nd semi final which turned out to be a tough race. They came home 5th after a sterling battle with Langstone in a time of 10.53 minutes. The final result of the Championships placed the Portland Junior Crew 9th out of 21 crews. Well done to our crew and all participating junior crews. Thank you to Newquay Rowing Club and the CPGA for once again hosting and organising a great event.
