Selection, Open and National Sprint Regatta – 30/31 March

The first of this year’s National Sprint Regattas took place this weekend up at Nottingham. A small group of club members took part, achieving some good results across the board. Saturday provided us with a beautiful, sunny day with the lake like a millpond with a slight headwind. Sunday proved far more challenging with a strong tailwind providing lots of waves out on the course.
