It was thrilling to see the C1 perform brilliantly this time at the British Rowing Offshore Championships recently as it took to the waters off Sandbanks, Poole facing stiff competition from many overseas competitors as well as British talent.
Matt Pullen won his heat by more than 30 seconds over the 6km course setting the second fastest time of the whole regatta making the final by a very comfortable 45 seconds. In the final, Pullen from Falmouth PGC was the first British rower to cross the line taking third overall behind two experienced coastal rowers from Sweden and the Czech Republic and 30 seconds ahead of fourth place. Congratulations to Matt on an excellent result and one which sees him selected as the British sculler for the World Championships at Thonon, France between 13th and 15th October.
