Easter Rowing Club Regatta
Great atmosphere last Saturday at the Pandan Reservoir, hosting the end of the season Club Race appointment.
Crystal clear flat water for most of the event program, allowed our members to compete well and have fun on a fast 1k distance (970mt on GPS Metrics).
The fastest event has been the mixed double featuring our Olympian Aisyah and Simon from Uk (former winner of Henley Regatta) marking 3 minutes & 17 seconds against Suzanne and Steve (3:48).

Master races have seen close heats between Ben Hopkins winning against Steve after a slower start by inches (both 4:01) and Freddie (4:12) faster than Bharat (5:32).
Our female club quad composed by Aisyah, Suzanne, Lizzie & Louisemarked a great victory of 3:30 against the men squad scratched crew of Antonio, Josip, Ben & Matteo finishing in 3:46.
