ROWING fans were in their element at the weekend as the town regattas took to the water in Hastings and Bexhill.

Sparkling sunshine made for perfect weather conditions on both days as crews from Dover in the east to Worthing in the west lined up for the Coast Amateur Rowing Association fixtures.

The Hastings Regatta got under way on Saturday and the Bexhill Regatta was contested the next day.

Bexhill Rowing Club continued its remarkable domination of the CARA season by amassing no less than 12 wins over the two days. They also secured three championships, numerous places and all the Aggregate trophies.
