THE Pages rowing races in Whitby were finally completed after being cancelled once again due to bad weather.

The first race was the boys under 14. This was a good race, very close at the pier ends with Jack Kelly’s Friendship crew holding on to win from Spencer Hewison’s crew for Fishermen’s.

The girls under 14 race saw eight crews take part. This race also proved to be a very good race and a pleasure to watch the youngsters row. The eventual winners were Kelly Probert’s Friendship crew and Chloe Scarth’s Fishermen’s crew a very close second.

The men’s under 21 was a first and second for Fishermen, Karl Hewison’s crew winning from Matthew Kendrew’s crew.

Scarborough were third in the ladies’ junior. Hope Locker’s crew for the reds had a comfortable win from Kirsty Kemsley’s crew for the blues.

The men’s under 23 race was won by Luke Clarkson’s crew for Friendship from Carl Purvis’ crew for the blues.

The ladies’ senior race was once again a close race at sea, but Yasmin Spencer’s Fishermen’s crew came out on top from Deidre Grady’s Friendship crew.

The final race of the day was the men’s senior. Twelve boats took to the start. Adam Young’s Friendship crew took an early lead and held on to win from Richard Dowson’s crew, also for the reds, Scarborough were third.

Thanks to the starter boats, Darren and Sid and Ken and Graham and the safety boat with Rob Parkin and crew.
