Juniors regatta at Stithians lake

Juniors regatta at Stithians lakeLast Monday, 31st May, the FMPGC juniors Mark, Bee, Gosse , Finn, Jack and Bauke had their first race together at the South West Lake Junior Event at Stithians. The event was organized in Newquay style with a pool of gigs – the Trefusis included. There were 2 series of sprint races and the top 4 teams were then entered in the final 3rd race.

Although 3 juniors were U14, the team had to be entered in the U16 races as a composite crew. Taking this into account, they did really well in finishing 7th out of 13 in their first race in Lark. The second race they had a disadvantage at the start, still backwatering when the call to start was made, resulting in finishing 10th in the Bedehaven. Overall they did really well and most importantly thoroughly enjoyed themselves!
