Junior Inter-regional Regatta, 20th April

27 QEHS Rowing club athletes qualified to represent the Northern region at the junior Inter-regional regatta, held at Nottingham. The JIRR event is a competition for the best crews from all the regions of England, Wales and Scotland. This was a record number of QEHS athletes selected to represent the region. All crews participate in a time trial in the morning followed by a final in the afternoon. The finals are raced side by side which is exciting for the spectators to watch.
