We had our "Tiger Cup" this morning, as many club members as we could get out in short races using all 3 of our boats. Conditions couldn't have been better, flat calm sea, blue sunny sky, and no wind.
We laid a couple of marks in the morning to give each boat their own mark, over a course of (at a guess) 400m. It's pretty difficult laying three buoys in a straight line! Hats off to those regattas that manage to get a whole line of buoys in a straight line. Turn out lane one was at last a boat length further, oops....never mind it was fun races, and I don't think anybody noticed, or if they did they were too polite to mention it :-)
There were 6 races, with all crews getting two races before a seventh "final" race where the fastest three boats fought it out, and the poetically named "Team B" won - well done Claire Gardner, Ian Baird, Johnny Macnair, and Karen Johnston. Full results here
It was a great morning with 32 club members rowing, we should do it again sometime!
