The National Watersports Centre at Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham is reknowned for being in a rather exposed location weather-wise and even on a calm day there is always some breeze to be had. So last Sunday’s stiff breeze was always going to present a challenge to the competitors for the Clough/Taylor 10k that involved 2 laps of the Regatta lake and hitting a stiff head-wind at least twice.
We had 5 club mates taking part in the race that formed the 2nd race of this year’s Club Championship. First home for the men was Sean McAuliffe in 44:12 and looking at his Strava data you could tell when he was hitting the wind as his race-pace dropped. First home for the ladies was Kate Howes in 62:16 – well done everyone that took part 🙂
The full age graded results were:
