Metropolitan Regatta

The Olympic rings decorating Eton Dorney were epic reminders of the London 2012 races held at the Metropolitan Regatta course. Nonetheless water is water and wind is wind and there was plenty of both over the weekend with some bow sinking waves!

Danny Morris and Anna Swan represented the club racing singles racing on both days. On Saturday Anna narrowly missed out on the IM2 final coming second in the reparge. Danny hailed success in the IM3 reparge with an inspirational sprint finish over the line taking him into the final.

Sunday saw Anna in the IM3 final where she led the race for the first 1800m just losing out to winning crossing the finish line less than a second behind the winner. Danny made it straight into the IM3 final with a strong performance in the heats coming fourth in the final.

Despite the long journey, both rowers were proud to represent Clydesdale ARC at this high profile event.  The event website is here.
