8th/9th June 2024: Durham Regatta

We had multiple boats attend the prestigious Durham Regatta from singles to eights, really showing the clubs depth of membership.
Saturday was a good day and the crews dealt with an unusually windy river Wear. Admirable shifts were put in by all the crews but highlight of the day goes to Ciaran winning the Op Beginner 1x earning a spot on the T H De Winton Trophy with his first race for City of Sheffield.

Sunday brought a calmer day and the chance for more wins. With some close match ups all through the day the scarlet and silver of Sheffield was always in the fight and we got to multiple finals. The Women's Elite 2- raced hard in their final against a fantastic Tyne Amateur Rowing Club pair. The Men's 8+ rounded out the day with a delayed final after losing their rudder in the semi, with massive help form the University of Sheffield Boat Club, the 8+ was able to get afloat and come up with a win for the Joseph Brown Memorial Cup despite being underdogs throughout the competition. A special thanks from the crew to Charlie MacMahon who jumped in at the eleventh hour to help us out.

The weekend was rounded out by ever-enjoyable Durham prize giving where the winning crews were awarded their trophy by the Lord Lieutenant of Durham and a special guest, University Boat Race winner, Matt Edge.
