Building on the success at this year’s Cornwall Sports Awards, fixed seat rowers from Cornwall were recognised as sporting volunteers. Each year, British Rowing asks clubs around the country are asked to nominate members who have put in considerable time and effort within the sport. Winners from the West region in both the adult and junior section this year came from rowing clubs in Cornwall.
Dylan Jane, of was nominated by his own club, Penryn, who are affiliated to both the Cornish Pilot Gig Association, and the Cornwall Rowing Association. Dylans efforts were recognised for developing the club website, and also for the development of a website for the Cornish Rowing Association. A keen rower himself for a number of years, Dylan was presented the junior award by HSCT coach Rhiannon Halliday during the CRA annual presentation evening. This was not Dylan’s only award of the evening as he also picked up the under 16 championship for pair of paddles.
