POOLE ROWING REGATTA 2017 VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS

Two more championships were won in miserable wet conditions at Poole regatta on Saturday. 

Highlights of the days racing are available in the posted video. 

Extended race footage can be ordered as instant downloads from the rowing section of our Online Store (click here for the direct link). 

The Ladies Masters Fours final would prove to be the days most dramatic as BTC and Southampton raced for the championship. BTC went into the final with a 6-3 lead but Southampton had already saved two match points. 

A third Southampton win wasn't to be though as BTC won a narrow race to secure the championship. 

James Foad of Itchen would win the Men's Senior Sculls title as well but he had to settle for second in his race. Shanklin's Alex Robertson took the win and Foad was left with an unassailable 5-2 lead over Adam Ratcliffe. 

Two championships remain with two regattas to go. The Ladies Junior and Senior Sculls combined final was won by a late entry from BTC and we have been unable to discover which status she was so far. 

The Men's Junior Scull title will go down to the final day as well, as Dale Buckett levelled up with Jack Rose at 4-4. 

There was a controversial moment in the Men's Masters Over 40 Fours final (both the race officials and BTC requested that the video is included in the highlights) where BTC were disqualified under starters orders. 

Highlights of the British Rowing Offshore Championships, featuring Itchen's bid to become National Champions in the open quad sculls, will follow shortly.
