After a very windy and wild Saturday the winds finally eased overnight and on Sunday, June 16th a fantastic day of racing was held when Aberdyfi Rowing Club was host to crews from both the
Southern and Northern League.
Our chairman Nigel Pearson said “ It was
great to have so many boats from both Leagues competing in races today - we must have had nearly two hundred people
“ With both Northern and Southern Leagues competing It
was a wonderful sight to see so many boats lined up across the estuary for the start of each race. Conditions were quite challenging and
testing with rolling waves for some of the time but also very exciting and fun
for some! For many rowers it was quite thrilling to see the white water on either side as they rowed the course"

"Congratulations to our men's crew of David Chapman, Paul Chesworth, Dylan Evans, Paul Cruickshank and cox Ian Brown - overall winners of the men's race after a close race between rival crew from Solva. A terrific finish for Aberdyfi."

“ Thanks must go to all

who helped to make the day so successful - in particular to the Dovey Yacht
