Clubs from all over Wales descended on New Quay on Sunday; all prepared for an exciting days' rowing and bringing nearly 30 boats to New Quay. The weather again was on our side and the New Quay backdrop allowed for fantastic scenery.

Next up it was the men's race and with a slight change to the New Quay men's team nerves were high. The New Quay Trojans held their own and came a respectable 6th out of a strong 20 boat line up, with Aberdyfi taking the trophy. Next came the junior and novice crew races with teams from Llangrannog, PYC, Aberystwyth and Aberaeron all competing. Finally is was the mixed team race - a massive 26 boats lined up, with Aberdyfi taking this years trophy .

Porthmadog Race day

New Quay Community Rowing Club travelled to Porthmadog on Sunday 27th May to compete in their first northern race of the season. Competition is tough in the northern league but hopes were high. A blisteringly hot day ensued, making hard racing conditions for all competing rowers. The ladies race started the days proceeding with the men's up next and finally after a short interval the mixed race.

New Quay Ladies won their category with 12 seconds between them and Aberdyfi ladies, the 2nd ladies team finished in 4th place. The men's team - Trojans came in fourth in a very tough field with the New Quay mixed team wining their race by 5 seconds!
