King’s Hospital Boat Club at the National Indoor Rowing Championships 2017

Tue 24th Jan 2017

King’s Hospital Boat Club at the National Indoor Rowing Championships 2017.

Early on Saturday morning, the 21st January a bus load of KH students - along with coaches and parents - departed for the University of Limerick to race the Irish Indoor Rowing Competition. KHBC was one of over 60 clubs entered with over 1200 rowers competing. Ireland Olympians Paul and Gary O’Donovan were amongst the entries competing in the 2000 meter time trial. Paul set a new personal best (PB) – by just .1 of a second! Many of the KH students managed to record a PB time over the 2k time trail as well with Maile Wedgwood coming home in a time of 7 minutes 47 seconds while Jack Lane was fastest of the boys, crashing through the all important ‘seven minute’ mark with a score of 6 minutes 52 seconds. Jonathan Doyle shaved 4 seconds off his PB to finish a credible 4th in his event.

For many of our members this was their first competition and the debutants did extremely well, competing in the shorter course of 500 meters. The womens team showed excellent consistency with five of the squad completing the course in under 2 minutes. Similarly the mens team had five debutants competing the course in 1 minute 40 seconds or less.
