The finale of the long distance sculling series 2014 came to its conclusion at Cambois Rowing Club recently with a huge turn out that surpassed the Cambois Regatta held in May.

The mornings rowing event, the LDS, saw 149 rowers competing in the 3,500-metre course along the Wansbeck starting under the Spine Road bridge and finishing at the park near Green Lane with the event competitors ranging from 12 years to veterans with a good mix of quads, doubles and single sculls.

The LDS was won by the x4 Durham ARC, Lutz-Natress in a time of 11.34, and the event was well supported from the banks of the Wansbeck with a good crowd cheering on all competitors.

The afternoon’s event was the Wansbeck SBH won by Tyne RC Hunter in a time of 11.15.

The Cambois club is run by a dedicated team of people who give up their free time to all ages to see them strive and achieve success, and without these committed individuals the area would suffer from not making full use of the natural facilities offered by the river Wansbeck and the local area.
