Evesham Regatta 2008: Afternoon Review


Heavy rains cast doubts over Evesham Regatta, Saturday 3 May, which only cleared Friday lunchtime when the go-ahead was given.
With one eye on the weather, the organisers replaced the 1000 metre upstream course with the Sunday Sprint format of 500 metres downstream. Not only shorter, rowers going to the start no longer had to cross the course.
Events were split into morning and afternoon sessions to enable athletes to compete in more than one event, and with no further rain the regatta ran to time in ideal rowing conditions.
