mlnmlnMonster the Loch - 28th September 2019
Monster the Loch is the first mass participation boat race on Loch Ness. All human powered types are invited to race, but as the weather and the Monster can be unpredictable the boats must be sea worthy.
The Loch is 21miles long and 1 mile wide.  A large fleet of over 60 crafts of various shapes and sizes with around 270 participants took part in this event. The race run from Fort Augustus to Dores.
Eva was part of a crew of 6 in the sea-worthy 'Swift' - Hazel Smith and Hazel Gaddis from Inverness RC, Robert Young from St Andrew RC, Ailie Ord and Laura Graham from SPRC, who swapped over at the halve way point. It started of nice and calm, but the waves got higher and higher to the point were the waves were swamping the boat and the rowers and they had to stop every 1500m to bail it out. For the last 5km they were a man down after the waves were strong enough to snap a poor crewmate's blade.

wrmrwrmrWorld rowing masters regatta, Lake Velence, Hungary 11-15 September 2019 
It was only Eva from LLRC who ventured to Hungary for the World Masters Rowing Regatta. The conditions for the regatta were brilliant with glorious sunshine and mostly calm water.
The regatta attracted over 5000 entries representing 52 countries and concluded on Sunday with 89 mixed races. Because of the large number of entries races started every 3 minutes during the regatta, meaning no progression system through heats, semi-finals and finals, so all races were in effect finals with medals awarded to the winner of each race. Competitors at the regatta ranged in age from 27 to 93 and competed in races grouped by those nearest in age.
Eva came away with two WINS - WF2x with Ailie Ord (SPRC) and Mixed G2x with John Appelby (Durham RC).
She also had 4 second places (WF1x, WG4x, WF4x, Mixed G4x) and two third places. It was a very well organised regatta with superb facilities and plenty of staff on hand when needed.
Results from all 5 days are available on the world rowing master regatta website
