The JB Sharp series has become a regular regatta series we attend now and though it does not attract a large number of Nepean rowers it presents an opportunity for the keen rowers to get out and participate in some racing during what is normally a time of just training.
The first regatta of the series was the Glebe regatta which meant only 500 metre racing which was a shock to everyone's body after doing very little race pace work in the last couple of months.
The under 16 women's singles was first up and this saw Victoria push out to an early lead which she held to the end to take the win.
The under 16 men's single saw Jooya and Jonathon take to the water. Both boys got off to a good start however Jonathon misjudged his line and took out a bouy only a hundred or so metres into the race. Jooya went on to claim second behind a Sydney sculler.
The men's pair of Jason and Joel took to the water and after no training in the lead up performed very well. They were able to take a comfortable win after the chasing Glebe crew died off in the final stages of the race.
The handicap singles saw Victoria place first, Maral second and Jonathon fifth in their respective divisions.
The scratch quad of Daniel, Joel, Jason and Jooya got out from the start well however Sydney took the lead early. Pushing hard in the later stages allowed the Nepean crew to prevail as winners.
The final race of the day was the women's intermediate double which featured Victoria and Maral. They lead from start to finish.
The results were great, but more importantly all rowers learnt something from their racing.
It was a great day of racing capped off by a good feed at the fish markets. Thanks to everyone who helped make the day possible.
