Some of the rowers from Enniskillen Royal Boat Club competed in Chester Virtual Regatta last weekend.

And there was a great win in the Junior 14 singles for Niamh Cassidy in a time of 2.42.4 minutes which was 4.5 seconds ahead of her nearest rival, Lucy Naylor from Grovenor RC.

Niamh went on to achieve a second place finish alongside Alex Kerr in the Junior 15 2X event in a time of 2.50.6 mins over a virtual 750m course.

Chester Regatta is one of the oldest Regattas in the UK and with racing cancelled due to Covid-19 the organisers decided to run a virtual event this year.

These virtual events have given the rowers from the Club a focus over the last few months while they have been unable to row on Lough Erne and have been training at home.

Enniskillen Royal Boat Club rower Lewis Nixon broke a second Irish Indoor record last week, this time over 6Km in a time of 21.58.7 minutes.

Enniskillen Royal Boat Club rowers, Lewis Nixon, Sam Balcombe, Tim Murphy and Niamh Cassidy currently hold four of the Irish Indoor records.
