The rescheduled Mount’s Bay Regatta took place on Saturday 5th of June. With the weather threatening to rain just before the coxswain’s meeting, it held off and the Men’s A started the days proceedings.
With a short first leg (4:42) the first turn was a sharp course change. Mount’s Bay Men’s A turned first with the bow rower tossing, follwed by Melusine (Zennor). Taking 3 lengths on the first mark, Mount’s Bay stretched their lead as they crossed the line. The Men’s B took to the water for the second race with a shock battle for first place between Monut’s Bay Men’s B & C crew. The C crew made up of older veterans, developing juniors, and several retired rowers (6 years was the last time in the boat) the C crew had mighty start and took the lead, but as the crews approached the first mark the B’s just managed to reel in enough of a lead to get the water.
The Ladies A race had a brilliant battle between Kensa (Mount’s Bay) & Brisons (Cape Cornwall), Brisons made up of three Cape rowers, one Mount’s Bay rower & two Falmouth rowers pushed Mount’s Bay all the way to the line. The Ladies B again saw a tight race between Kensa and Azook (Hayle), also made up of two Falmouth rowers.
The Under 14′s had a straight sprint along the side of the iconic St Michael’s Mount with Lark taking a well deserved victory. The Veterans race saw Melusine (Zennor) take the Men’s title and Kensa take the Ladies. The mixed was a hard fought battle between two Mount’s Bay crews with Zennor in third.
