Rowing – The Queens Regatta
The Queens Regatta took place on 7 May 2016 in Castlewellan, Co Down and it proved to be another hugely successful event for our Rowers.
Our U15 Coxed Quad – Sean Hannon, Conal Regan, Josh Loghrey (all 3rd Year), Louis Crowe and Matt Smith (Cox) (both 2nd Year) – won their event beating Portora Boat Club by a canvas.
Conal Regan and Josh Loughrey won the U15 Double Sculls from Portora, Methodist College and our 2nd crew of Sean Hannon and Louis Crowe.
Our U16 Coxed Quad of Fergal McCluskey, James Gibney, Harry Sharpe, John Fennelly (all 3rd Year) and MJ Power (Cox) (2nd Year) came 2nd in their Heat and finished 6th in the Final.
Patrick Riordan beat David Drennan (both Transition Year) by a foot in his Heat of the Men’s Single Sculls Event and finished 6th in the Final.
I congratulate all the boys on their performance and thank Laura Gannon for her commitment to rowing at Blackrock.
