Red Rose Sprint – May 2012

By Oliver Standford | In General News, Newsletter | on February 8, 2014
By Steven Sullivan A late change to the Red Rose Sprint date between all Lancaster based rowing clubs meant that this year's event ran a little bit chaotically:
  • one club didn't know that the event was running,
  • the initial timetrial had to be scrapped,
  • the last crew turned up 45 minutes late,
  • one sculler had a 4+ handicap and a mixed 2x racing as female!
The main highlight of the event was the JOG 4x (favourites) extending the handicap that the LRGS 4+ had to make it "fairer", then the JOG crew caught a crab which allowed the boys to go on and win the first semi-final race. By the end of racing 8 crews had raced down three times from the Aqueduct to the Club for a final placing of:
  1. LUBC/JOG 8+
  2. LRGS 4+
  3. JOG 4x
  4. LRGS 1x
  5. JOG 4x (vets)
  6. LRGS 2x A
  7. LRGS 2x B
  8. LRGS 4x+
JOG went on to win the event by virtue of having 8 men in the top three boats, LSRA placed second as they had 8 participants, LRGS placed third as they had 5 participants, and LUBC placed last as they only had 4 participants.
