As a development to the competitions this year each school involved was provided with the opportunity to have a couple of rowers in school prior to the competition for a couple of days to organise practice sessions and find their best team.

At KS3 nine schools were competing for the title of overall champions with teams of four boys and four girls from each school involved. A magnificent atmosphere was created with a hall full of participants and supporters cheering everyone on to give it their all as rowers took it in turns to row for up to a minute ,seeing how they were doing against their competitors on the big screen.

The winner of the male individual title rowed at an amazing pace of 1:30.6 per 500m covering 331m in 60 seconds; with the winning female covering 282m at a pace of 1:46.1 per 500m. Team honours went toMarketBosworthHigh Schoolafter calculating the combined performances of their boys, girls and mixed team races.
