The 2022 CDRA Sprint regatta was conducted on the highest tide the event has ever experienced. For the middle bracket of racing, there was no beach in front of the Endeavour tent with the water half way up the new stone wall. In the BRO tent at the finish line, the water came around the stone wall and nearly reached the feet of the officials. The depth of water prompted some novel methods of presenting medals (see picture). The weather was mild and the wind stayed away giving perfect racing conditions.
Eighteen Endeavour members attended (9 men and 9 women) with 2 of them having their first ever race - and their first ever win. From 21 starts, our squad had 5 firsts, 10 seconds and 4 thirds. Lindy Nisbett won all 3 of her events, all being in championships. Chris Brennan also had 3 wins including 2 championships while Rosie Furness and Natalie Williamson each won 2 races.
