This month's minihead was run in different format to normal, with crews setting off in pairs and racing from Teal to the club, producing some exciting and close racing. Conditions were a little challenging in places thanks to a stiff breeze. Thanks to the Vet Men for running this month's event.

Next month's event will take place in just two weeks' time, on Sunday 9th July, and will be run by Warby's squad.

Additional thanks go to Aleck Bruce who has kindly stepped up as the new Minihead Coordinator, taking care of the behind-the-scenes running of the event from month to month.

A big entry this month with 25 boats on the water and a lovely sunny morning to boot! Thanks to the Juniors and their parents for running the event this month. Next month there will be no minihead as it is Tees Regatta! The date and organising squad for the June minihead are currently TBC.

Tees RC's very own Paralympic Gold medal winner Laurence Whiteley, named in the 2017 New Year Honours List, has been awarded his MBE by Prince Charles on 24th March 2017.  A truly fitting end to a sensational 2016 season and well deserved recognition for his achievements in Rio. Many, many congratulations from everyone at your home club Laurence!
