Oar-some turnout for rowing race

PYC RegattaON Sunday, September 1, Pembrokeshire Yacht Club held their annual league rowing race, and there was a very large turnout
The results are as follows: Men’s – Solva; Ladies – Aberporth; Mixed – Aberystwyth Vets.
A special mention has to be made to PYC juniors this being their first ever race, and they did really well. The team is trained by Stephen Farmer who has put in a lot of time and effort coaching them. Well done to the team.
Also the section gained a lot of new members at the beginning of the year through an open day held at the club. This resulted in the formation of three new novice teams, and they all had a good season. Congraulations to the ‘’Roaring 40s’’ who won the league.
The rowing section committee are continually trying to seek sponsorship and would like to thank MHPA, Milford Haven Round Table and Stoddart Tyres for allowing them to invest in brand new safety equipment, which has enabled them to expand the junior section.
The next open day will be on Saturday, September from 11 am to 2 pm, for anyone who would like to come down and give rowing a try. The club are actively seeking male members, come on men give it a go! If anyone is interested and are up for the challenge please contact either: Emma Gent (Ladies’ Captain) – 07940503991 or Karl Webber (Men’s Captain) – 0779054498.
