Junior members of Enniskillen Royal Boat Club journeyed to Dublin on Saturday last to row on the iconic stretch of the Liffey before it enters the city at Islandbridge.

Trinity Regatta has been an event on the Irish rowing calendar since 1866 and is a typical twisting course - narrow in parts - so excitement is guaranteed.

There were five wins and other good performances on a good day for ERBC.

There were two wins in the J15 double sculls - in this event each race is treated as a final as there are so many entries which precludes semis and finals.

Natalie Turner and Isabella Wright and Tori Davis and Grace Collins won well against Graiguenamanagh [Kilkenny] and Neptune [Dublin] respectively. Natalie and Isabella teamed up with Darcy Balfour, Chloe Simmons and cox Cillian Donaghy to defeat Neptune on their home water.

The boys J14 quad produced the finish of the day when they defeated Neptune by six feet in a stormer of a race. Cillian Donaghy, Dara McMurray-Taylor, Lewis Coalter, Matthew Montgomery and cox Grace Collins were able to hold it together under serious pressure from a partisan crowd.

Donaghy went again in the J14 double scull with Joshua Ihnat to defeat Kings Hospital.

This was strong showing for the young members of the club and now thoughts will turn to the National Schools Regatta in England at the end of the month where the opposition will be from many clubs in the UK and Ireland.
