Conditions at Porthmadog were pretty tough right from the start with some very strong winds which caused changing conditions throughout the day and some very challenging rowing!
However it was a great day of racing for everyone, with strong competition between the clubs. Our ladies team of Beth P, Toni, Jude and Beth Eds, coxed brilliantly by Ian, won their race and beat Porthmadog ladies by just 2 seconds!
Thanks to Porthmadog Club for hosting an excellent day.
Congratulations to everyone who raced, and also to our great coxes Alun, Ian and Dave Chapman.
Also a big thankyou to Dylan for driving us there and back in the minibus!
We look forward now to the rest of the season!
