Bussey Horwood Lawyers and Roebothan McKay & Marshall posted the fastest times of the day Saturday in the Discovery Day Regatta, the kick-off event of the 2014 provincial fixed-seat rowing season.
A total of 45 crews — nine senior male, 32 female and four age-group — rowed at Quidi Vid Lake in St. John’s.

Bussey Horwood had a time of 9:26.17, fastest among the senior males, in winning the first race of the day. MAX Athletics, competing in the same race, was next quickest at 9:34.10, with Toyota third at 9:35.45

Roebothan McKay and Marshall had the best senior female time with a 5:24.69. MAX Athletics Females were second at 5:32.81 in the same race, a reversal of the 2013 female championship result at the 2013 Royal St. John’s Regatta, where the MAX Girls were first and RMM second.

Ellsworth, racing in the second senior female race on Saturday, had the division’s third-fastest time, a 5:39.33.

The closest winning result Saturday came in the fourth senior female race as Summit Plumbing edged Hyflo by less than a second.

The next event at Quidi Vidi are the time trials on Saturday, July 12, when the seedings and race schedule for the Royal St. John’s Regatta will be established. The Regatta itself is set for Wednesday, Aug. 6.

Outside of St. John’s, the Placentia Regatta will be held on July 19, with the Harbour Grace Regatta the following week, on July 26.

Of course, as always, competition on the set dates is weather permitting.
