There was little time to enjoy Enniskillen Royal Boat Club’s success in London as some athletes were only home 12 hours before they were on the road again to Cork for the final round of the Irish Trials on Saturday 25th March.
Having completed an initial 1900 meter time trial, crews were ranked and arranged into finals with the fastest six boats competing the A-final and the next six boats competing the B-final.
Any sign of lethargy from a week of intense racing dissipated quickly as the boat club continued it’s dominant run of performances. Ross Corrigan and Aaron Johnston topped the junior men’s ranking comfortably, while Nathan Timoney and Odhran Donaghy won the B-final. On the girl’s side, Mia-Jayne Elliott and Zoe McCutcheon ranked second with teammates Caitlynn Fee and Miriam Kelly behind in third. These results keep these athletes in contention to represent Ireland this summer.
For the senior members of the club there will be further testing in Cork at Skibbereen Regatta on the 8th and 9th of April. Meanwhile the junior club travels to Dublin this Saturday for the first regatta of the season – Neptune Regatta.
