Bexhill crews equal record wins

BEXHILL Rowing Club equalled their best ever performance of five wins in one day despite turning up at Dover Regatta on Saturday with only 14 rowers.

The junior four of Nick and Phil McCorry, Doug Holdaway, Andy Welling and cox Callum Payne produced the best race of the day over the 1,800m course to claim their fourth success of the year and the 2004 Junior Fours Championship by four wins to three from closest challengers Dover.

The quartet split up to contest the junior pairs with the McCorry brothers winning their third race of the season while Holdaway and Welling finished fourth.

The next race saw Mark Mitchell row effortlessly to win the senior sculls with Andy Bickers fourth. Mitchell then teamed up with brother Matt to win their eighth senior pairs race of the year.

The Mitchells also joined forces with Nick Woolgar, Cahill and cox Callum Payne to win the premier event of the day, the men's senior fours, to give Mark Mitchell his third senior win of the day, a feat never before accomplished by a Bexhill rower.
