The HDARA returned to the Isle of Wight on Sunday as Newport Rowing Club hosted their annual regatta. 

Highlights of the day's racing is available in the posted video. Extended race footage can be bought from our Online Store as instant downloads (click here for the direct link). 

Three championships would be secured at the regatta, which was for the fours only as the small boats & junior regatta was cancelled due to a scheduling clash on the medina. 

The first championship that would be sealed during the regatta was the Men's Senior Fours title, which was won by Itchen. 

Christchurch then won the Men's Junior-Senior Fours championship before Ryde rounded off the main regatta with championship victory in the Ladies Junior Fours. 

There would also be three great races towards the end of the regatta. 

Both the men's and ladies' novice fours finals were decided by less than a canvas whilst Newport had to come from behind to beat Southampton to win the Ladies Senior Fours final. 

The next regatta is scheduled to take place at Southsea on Saturday where the HDARA will meet the Coast Amateur Rowing Association.
