The Ann Glanville crew from Caradon retained their women's world title, with Black Rock from Falmouth and Kensa from Mount's Bay in second and third.

The men's race was won by Currah's Pride from Looe, followed by Ann Glanville and Black Rock. Black Rock had previously won seven consecutive titles.

There was no third round of rowing this morning due to fog so round two qualifying positions determined the berth positions for the final round.

Friday's Supervets races were won by Kensa from Mount's Bay (women) and Black Rock from Falmouth (men). The Veterans winners were Grace from Charlestown (women) and Ann Glanville from Caradon (men).
