Waterford Boat Club travelled to Dublin’s Commercial Regatta on Sunday 7th of April.
A two lane, 1200-metre course, this regatta makes for close exciting racing.
The Waterford club had a total of 17 entries ensuring a busy event for all WBC crews, coaches & parents, with races throughout the day from 8am through to 7pm.
A strong Men’s Junior 15 Coxed Quad were up against Cork club Blackrock in their final, and rowed to victory by 4 lengths. This was followed by a competent win by Men’s Junior 14 Coxed Quad against Galway club St Joseph’s.
Notable performances by Robbie Grogan in the Single Scull to negotiate 2 heats and a quarter final, only to concede in the semi-final. Chulainn O’Mahoney also raced to the line in his Single Scull final to lose out by a canvas.
Waterford Boat Club crews will next compete at the Lee regatta on the 11th of May in Cork.
