rutherfordRutherford Head 30th November 2013 on the river Tyne

Eva went down to England to race over 5000m on the river Tyne from Scotswood to Newburn in a coxless quad with Gill Prescott from Duham and Ailie Ord and Liz Davidson from SPRC. The conditions were sunny (in the first division), but cold, specially on the start and a slight headwind!
In the 1st Dev. the quad was the fastest WIM2 4x in 17:36.4min and 44th place overall (out of 106 boats) including men's and women's 8's.
In the 2nd Dev. the tide, the flow of the river and the wind were against everyone therefore the times were slower. The quad rowed as a  W veteran D quad in 20:47.5 (19:36.5 with a handicap) and won the D/F category.
Tom Claxton, rowing for Edinburgh University at the moment were the fastest crew in the second division in 16:56.7 - Well done!

World Rowing Masters Regatta in Varese / North of Italy  5 - 8. September 2013


Loch Lomond Rowing Club Athletes (Eva, Martin and Sally who is a member of Loch Lomond, but registered under Reading for this event) performed well at the Masters Regatta.

The venue was stunning, an eight lane course on the beautiful Lake Varese with the Alps as the backdrop. It was very hot and the water conditions were near perfect with calm water.


This years entry was the biggest entry the Masters Regatta has ever seen with 3355 athletes, coming from 


633 clubs in 454 cities and covering 40 nations. There were more than 550 races with the winners being  awarded with a medal. Over 11,000 boat seats were occupied over the duration of the regatta with many rowers entering up to ten races.

How does the World Masters Regatta work? - Most of the races, divided into different age categories, have between 20 and 100 entries. It would be impossible to run the event as a traditional regatta with knock-out rounds. Therefore each event is sub-divided into a series of 8 boat, straight finals - so for example the ‘F’ single sculls had 14 ‘finals’ starting with the younger competitors moving through to the older ones. This means you are often racing people from the same ‘vintage year’ as yourself.


Anyone can enter, from a novice to an ex-Olympian. The competition is very fierce. Some clubs ‘cherry pick’ their athletes from right across their country, and ‘international’ crews which pick the best rowers from more than one country. So competition with these crews for a club such as Loch Lomond is a tough task

Sally Pollock Morrice WON an amazing 8 races, 3 in her single in A, B and C, one in the 2-C with Ailie Ord, one in the 4xB, the 4+D, 8+A and the mixed F2x. Well Done.

Eva entered 10 races and WON 3 of them - 1Ex, 2Fx (with Jacky Darling from England) and WC4x (with Ailie Ord and Liz from Strathclyde Park and Gill Prescott from Durham).  In 6 races (1Dx, 4xD, 4xE, 2xD, 2xE, 2xFmixed) she was second and in the mixed 4xD quad third.


Martin raced very well in his single E and produced an outstanding performance in the quad D with Strathclyde Park and Aberdeen.

On the unusually very windy and choppy waters of the Caledonian Canal some of our novice girls gained their first experience of racing and did not come away empty handed. In the WNov 2x Heather McKenzie and Robyn Whyte emerged as the winners with Heather also going on to win WNov 1x in challenging conditions in a club final against Kirsty Kay, the semi final for which unfortunately resulted in Hope Hastings tasting the waters of the canal. Hope was still a medal winner though as despite her coxing a quad for the first time and with a gusting tail wind she steered a winning course for the generation crew of Andy Summers, Lucy Bell, Rachel Gillies and Martin Claxton.  Lucy also went on to win WJu16 1x by a length. Andy and Donna Bell were sadly knocked out in the heats of the Mixed Vet 2x but Andy was able to claim a win with Martin in the O Vet 2x and in a club final beat Martin in the O Vet 1x.
