"I was pretty close to sinking, which is an indication the course is not rowable
. I was left in a boat full of water."
David Lantry, robotics coach and technical education teacher at Oakmont, said that for the competition, students are asked to design and build a rowable
remote-control boat that will go a distance of 100 yards in the water and return to shore.
Conditions were rowable
and most competitors completed the course without undue incident.
Announcing today's cancellation, regatta spokesman Matt Smith said, 'Sunday's conditions were unpleasant but rowable
. The wind was six metres per second, gusting to eight.
Llandaff's short stretch of rowable
water normally means they excel over the sprint course, but this time there were no eights or fours wins for the hosts.
