Plymouth Rowing Competition January 2020

Plymouth Primary Schools Rowing Competition 2020

Row, Row, Row!

Wow, this wonderful group of eight students from Wembury Primary School worked their socks off in the Plymouth inter schools rowing competition at Plymstock School this week. They worked so hard as a team and as individuals, the team spirit was amazing.

Each child had to row an individual two minute race and they were judged on the distance they rowed. George Brown with his powerful, steady, long stroke breezed into first place in the intermediate category; the distance he rowed was the best achieved in the whole competition. Snapping at his heels was Kenzo who came a close second.

Following the individual challenges, the children had to row as a team with each child rowing for thirty seconds. We were meters ahead within seconds of the competition starting. The children held onto this lead and managed to achieve another first place in the team event.

 All of the children did a fantastic job and as a school we came first in our category. We not only came first, we smashed the existing distance rowed in previous years in the team challenge.

What a wonderful afternoon with lots of happy smiling children from Wembury.
