A great weekend with Rex

Posted by Ynys Mon Rowing Club on Tuesday, August 23, 2011,

Over the weekend of the 20th & 21st August we were joined by Rex Boat Club from Chester. Usually a river rowing club, they fancied giving sea rowing in Bull Bay a go, so we took them for a tour of our coastline on Saturday, and had some short races on Sunday. Oh, and not forgetting a great social in the Trecastell Hotel on Saturday evening - food was fantastic and the company even better!!

August - A bit of a break from racing

Posted by Ynys Mon Rowing Club on Saturday, August 13, 2011,

August offers a bit of a break in the schedule of rowing on Anglesey, with the last two races in Aberaeron and Aberystwyth on the 23rd & 24th July, there's a much needed break of just over a month until the next race in Caernarfon.

Aberaeron and Aberystwyth were two difficult race days, not least due to the prospect of some members racing four times over the two days. The club finished well in all the races, coming away from the weekend with a very good points haul for the end of season trophi...

Ynys Mon at the World Rowing Coastal Championships

Posted by Ynys Mon Rowing Club on Wednesday, December 15, 2010,
In October a number of the clubs members competed at the FISA World Rowing Coastal Championships in Istanbul. Ynys Mon entered four boats this year and raced three, performing well against top flight opposition. Year upon year the competition gets tougher and tougher, and there's no doubt after this years event that good training and peak fitness is the key to a strong performance at next years event.
