May Bank Holiday Sunday saw the first Welsh Sea Rowing Regatta in over two years due to a Covid-19 enforced break.

Sion Cwilt Rowing Club based in New Quay, who are grateful for funding received by Versus Arthritis and Sports Wales, were delighted to host this event. Rowing Clubs from Beaumaris on Anglesey, to Clevedon in Somerset attended.

The weather was kind, the forecasted rain was just a drizzle in the morning and cleared as the day went on.

Sea conditions were interesting adding an extra challenge to the 3.5-mile course.

Juniors and novices raced over two miles.
