CARA J16s race at Junior Inter-Regional Regatta
Four CARA juniors joined over 900 juniors from across the country last weekend at Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham, racing at the Junior Inter-Regional Regatta 2015.
Beth Buchanan and Phoebe Mercer from Shoreham RC, and Abigail Little and Charlie Cooper from Bexhill ARC were selected to represent the Wessex region in the J16 coxless four.
Despite limited training time and never having raced a coxless four before, the girls rose to the challenge. Strong winds made things tricky at the start of their fist heat, however they found their stride as they lined up again in the B-final. A fabulous row saw the girls not only take a well-deserved second place, but also knock a whopping 55 seconds off their heat time. Well done!
A big congratulations to all four girls from CARA – we’re very proud to see our juniors representing Wessex on the national stage.
