James Morris races twice at Head of the Charles 2018

Share

Our club member and coach James Morris made us all very proud after competing at the Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston, USA over the weekend. This is the second time James secures a place in the largest two day regatta in the world, and this year he was part of two crews, the Irish Masters 8+ and the Directors Challenge Quad.

On Saturday 20th James competed as part of the Irish Masters 8+, finishing 13th out of 63, passing several boats along the way. And on Sunday 21st he once again teamed up with his rowing partner Gary Quin (Shandon Boat Club, Cork) and with Mark O’ Donovan and Shane O’ Driscoll from Skibbereen Rowing Club, Cork, who were World Rowing Champions in 2017 in the lightweight pair category. They finished 8th in the Directors Challenge Quad on their “Luck of the Irish” boat.

We would also like to congratulate Irish World Champions Sanita Puspure on winning along with her crew the Women’s Great8 and Paul O’Donovan on coming second at the Men’s Great8 at the Head of the Charles.

The Head of the Charles Regatta attracts over 11,000 participants and tens of thousands of spectators from all corners of the world, every year. The competition was created in 1965 by the Cambridge Boat Club, Massachusetts, USA and it has a 3 miles course.
