Ryde Ladies Novice Four

RYDE PERFORM WELL IN A STRONG FIELD BUT MISS OUT ON TOP SPOTS

Published at:

Ryde Rowing Club competed in their second event of the season on Saturday – the Southampton Rowing Club Coastal Head of the River.

The event was made up of 2 divisions raced over a 3-and-a-half mile course on the River Itchen in Southampton.

In the first division, the club’s Coastal Junior Four of Tom Starkey, Ben Sanderson, Tye Cameron and Austin Smith – with Dan Sanderson coxing – produced a good performance although they would have been a little disappointed with their 7th place finish in a strong field.

In the second division, a young Ladies Novice Four of Poppy Starkey, Freya Drage, Jasmine Corney and Emily Davis – coxed by Dan Sanderson once again – in only their second race together produced an excellent performance against much older opposition. They finished in 4th place, although a minor course infringement cost them a 15 second time penalty that cost them a place.
