National Junior Indoor Rowing Championship 2021

17 May

It takes more than a pandemic to stop the UK’s biggest adaptive rowing event – the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships. Like most of the rowing world, the NJIRC went virtual this year including a streaming a number of accompanying videos of pre-recorded material, live interviews (eg. interview with Helena, a disabled rower who rowed with LYR and Royal Dolphins, in the video above at 3:50:00) and filming of people participating at rowing centres. The event still succeeded in attracting over 100+ SEND competitors in 14 race categories producing some intense competition (with some razor close finishes). 

As in previous years, powerhouses Mayesbrook (3 wins), Drumbeat (4 wins), and Stormont (5 wins) powered to the podium.  Congratulations to the gold medalists this year:
