The second part of trials to Irish team has come to an end with some encouraging results for the future. Zoe Hyde(15) pulled amazing 7minutes and 42 seconds for 2,000m ergometer test, moving below the under18 category cut off point for the erg with 6 seconds to spare. Monika Dukarska (21) pulled 7 minutes on the ergometer and finished second on 5km water assessment in the Women’s Heavyweight U23 category. This assessment was a learning curve for some and we await list of candidates for April assessment. Thanks to all those who travelled up North to support the girls.
Our next event is the Cork Head of the River next weekend. We will race in the Women’s and Men’s Junior 15 quadruple scull and Women’s under 18 quad categories, we will also participate in the men’s and women’s junior 16 double scull, and we have few first time scullers, in the Men’s junior 15 and 16 events. Best of luck to all. Detailed crews will be posted soon on our blog soon.
