St Neots novices’ race to victory in the Charles Stanley Cup
On Saturday the 8th of February St Neots Rowing Club were proud to welcome the novice squads from West Norfolk and Isle of Ely for the final leg of the three-leg league of the Charles Stanley Cup.
After just 4 months of training on the respective Learn to Row courses, teams from all three clubs were keen to put into practice their sculling skills.
The final tally resulted in a win for St Neots under the leadership of Nicola Lundqvist, lead coach Jim Farrell and performance rower Huw Jarman. Sponsored by Charles Stanley Wealth Managers the event aims to bring together clubs from across the region to introduce novice rowers to the racing experience and enjoy the chance to compare notes with fellow novices over a post row BBQ.
Learn to Row courses are run annually by volunteers from each club and are aimed at all abilities, fitness levels and ages. Club Captain Tim Neill said that after this year’s success he was keen to make the cup an annual event and encourages anyone interested in finding out more to contact their local club.
If you’re interested in rowing at St Neots, we have three taster sessions coming up on the 29th of February and 7th and 8th March. Sessions run for one hour starting at 1pm at St Neots Rowing Club, Priory Lane, PE19 2PZ. Contact Nicola Lundqvist via the link on our website for more details: www.stneotsrc.co.uk
