message from ladies captain Kara...
and a report from men's vice captain James...
'On Sunday 7th
June 2015, Sea Rowing teams from across North Wales descended on Porthmadog
Rowing Club, who hosted the latest round of the North Wales Sea Rowing League
race. It was a stunning day with clear blue skies and light winds – perfect for
best replica watches
strong competition - that included teams from Borth, Conwy, Caenarfon, Ynys Mon
and Porthmadog - Aberdyfi laid down the marker as the Team to beat in North
Wales by winning all four races. It was a fantastic achievement for the squad
of 24 who took part!
The day was
a fantastic advert for Welsh Sea Rowing and epitomised the spirit of the sport
in a stunning location. Many thanks to Madog Rowing Club for organising a
brilliant event. We look forward to coming back next year.
would like to thank everyone who took part, be it the rowers, the coxes or our
great supporters. It was a superb day - thanks to all for your efforts. I look
forward to seeing you down the Boat Shed soon.'

Juniors : entered as u18 open team with Ed Roberts, Lewis Morgan, Eleanor
Pridding & Clarice Pridding with cox Ian Brown. They beat everyone
else in their race including a group of novice adults.
Brown, Nigel Pearson, Alun Stedman, Bethan Parry, Kara Chesworth and Claire
Alun also commented after the race:
" This was a timed race so knowledge of local conditions was an advantage.
The coxes had
an extra problem in gauging their tactics and no passing was allowed in the mooring
section which featured as the first and last half mile of the course. In bright
sunshine locating a smallish green buoy in choppy sea was not easy !
Good to see
our newcomers to racing getting good rows - this promises well for the future of our club. Their rapid progress shows what people can achieve if they have a go. We look forward to our next league race this Sunday at Beaumaris - a new location for League
