Shoreham rowers star in their home regatta

An outstanding performance from crews at all levels saw Shoreham Rowing Club take home an impressive 11 wins at their own Regatta on Saturday, as well as the grand aggregate trophy, awarded for points accrued from first, second and third place finishes.

Once again, Shoreham’s ladies crews were on top form, with wins coming from the under-16 quad sculls, junior fours, junior pairs, senior fours, senior pairs and an impressive one-two in the double sculls. Mostly unbeaten in the first five regattas of the 13 this season, Shoreham’s women’s crews are looking strong and are favourites to take home each of the women’s championships.

The club’s men’s squads also performed exceptionally well, with the junior four of James Tilley, Cian Kennedy, Max Huxtable and James Mouland pushing ahead of Deal to claim another win and tie their race for the championship at two all.

Huxtable and Mouland also secured a comfortable win in the junior fours pairs, before Mouland then took his second win of the season in the novice scull.

The regatta also saw Shoreham’s novice men’s four of Alex Apps, Alfie Scott, Matt Randall and Eamonn Wilkinson, coxed by Max Huxtable, win their first ever race in a close contest with a crew from Dover.

The young four rowed extremely well, maintaining their composure under pressure to take the win by half a length.

Shoreham’s Garry Saunders then finished off the day with a win in the veteran 40-plus single sculls in the afternoon’s bumpy sea conditions.

The day’s results saw Shoreham take home the regatta ladies aggregate, junior aggregate and grand aggregate trophies, and sees the club stretch its lead in the CARA grand aggregate, awarded to the club which wins the most races over the course of the 13-regatta season.
