|Winners, Blades of Dartmouth|
|King's Lynn winners for couture|
Numbers in the traditional race, for fixed seat boats without outriggers, were slightly reduced this year, however ten assorted skiffs and gigs mustered by Bishop Bridge, built in 1340 and witness to Carrow Cup races going back to the early 1800s.
As before the "traditional" rowers compete on handicap for the Bi-centenary Bowl, which was given by The Norwich Society in 2013 to encourage use of the River Wensum in Norwich and to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the existing (and second) silver Carrow Cup.
|North Berwick in Eton skiff Seraph|
In the event, Blades of Dartmouth, who had made the long journey from Devon were too strong for last year's winners, Lower Thames Rowing Club, and for the North Berwick pair, who were beaten into second place. The 30 second winning margin appearing to contradict the neck and neck struggle witnessed by spectators on the bank.
Southend junior girls put in a good time amongst senior (and in some cases very senior) opposition.
|Southend in Rozenante|
Vanessa Trevelyan, chair of The Norwich Society, presented the Bi-centenary bowl to the Felton Flyer crew and David Bolton, chairman of Norwich Rowing Club, invited everyone to return to Norwich for The Carrow Cup 2018.
