8 Club Wins at an unseasonably cold and wet Talkin Tarn Regatta
It was an 'interesting' day at Talkin Tarn. We did have visions of sitting on the grass eating ice-cream and cheering each other on but it was to be a day of some extremes of weather with torrential rain, interspersed with wild winds whipping up the waves and then brief moments of respite with bursts of blue sky and sunshine. The weather took it's toll on several scullers including our own Adam Howorth. Adam who had won his heat in style to take his place in the final had an unscheduled dip in the Tarn around 3 strokes from the finish line!
Although we had many heat wins the final tally was 8 wins for Hexham Senior and Junior Squads. Amongst the Seniors it was the performance Squad that brought home the medals with the Racing Squad not quite able to push through for medal places. Something to sort out for next year!!

Good luck to all. #GoTeamHexham!
