Ynys Mon Regatta, Sunday June 21st
.. read ian andrew's race report....



 .. another good club effort - this time at Ynys Mon....
 
 
"The conditions on the North coast of Anglesey were fairly rough with strong winds building up the waves. The races were set up with the outward leg being Breitling Replica Watches into the wind creating challenging slow going conditions until the buoy turn, followed by relatively fast downwind conditions to the finish."

"The ladies race was first with 2 boats, Ynys Mon and Aberdyfi,  pulling away from the others right from the start. Inch by inch Aberdyfi, coxed by Ian Brown and comprised of Kara, Catrin, Claire & Rhian, pulled away to be in the lead by 2 boat lengths by the half way mark. This grew to about 8 boat lengths by the end. An impressive win."

"Next came the mens race with slightly worse conditions www.cheaphublot.biz than the ladies race. Immediately from the start the race was between 4 boats who pulled away from the fleet. Two home crews from Ynys Mon held the better tidal line for the first leg out to the buoy turn, holding a small lead from two Aberdyfi crews. Once the turn was made the big swell offered a fast return and played into the hands of the more experienced vets crews who rowed past the senior crews to come first and second, with Ynys Mon vets winning, followed by Aberdyfi vets (Coxed by Lonny, rowed by Ian A, Paul, Dylan and Ian B), followed closely by Aberdyfi seniors (coxed by Kara crewed by Tom, Ed, Dom and Paul) who came third, with Ynys Mon seniors taking fourth place."

"Aberdyfi's super vets of Dave Chapman, Alun Stedman, Mike Rogers, John Ward woth cox Rhian Jones came second and Aberdyfi's mixed crew of Catrin Owen,Dom West, Ed Moss and Rhian Jones with cox Ian Brown came second in their race - both with very good performances."
 
"The junior race was kept out of the worst of the rough water but still provided plenty of challenge. Aberdyfi & Porthmadog U16 open crews fought neck and neck with the advantage initially going to Porthmadog as they had the inside line on the first turns, until an equipment issue temporarily halted Porthmadog allowing Aberdyfi (Coxed by Ian B, crewed by Lonny, Lewis, Eleanor & Clarice) to take the inside line and go on to win the race. So far the juniors have won every race they've entered - a fantastic achievement!"
 
"Thanks must go to Ynys Mon rowing club for hosting a great day of racing !"
 
Alun also commented ," The conditions were very testing but safe, due to a strong wind. It was a challenge for the coxes to deal with the choppy conditions and Ian Brown,Lonny Chesworth ,Kara Chesworth and Rhian Jones all did a brilliant job."
 "The club's policy of mixing crews around has been very successful , allowing many members to be in winning crews and shows the high skill level that exists amongst our members."
