Time Trial season kick's off

Last weekend saw the start of the club time trial season with seven crews posting times in the scull and four boat categories.

The men’s fours were the first crews to record times and the Development Squad crew of Charlie, Guy, Michael, Neil and Cox Dennis Beck recorded a credible time of 37 min 29 sec for the round the island course.

In the women’s fours, two crews posted times and

women’s squad members Kate Diebold, Geraldine Goss, Susie Ballentyne, Anthea Amos and cox Nicole Stupka recorded the fastest time of 40 min 15 sec.

Three scullers also took to the water and Dennis Beck recored the fastest time of 7 min 58 sec, 44 seconds faster than his closest rival.

Crews and scullers have until 30 May to post times for them to be eligible for the 2009/10 season time trial trophies. Members are reminded that time trials accumulate club points with every time trial completed and a bonus points are given if the sculler or crew beats the fastest time posted to date.

If you want to do a time trial contact either Simon Crunden or Nicole Stupka to organise a suitable time.
