MAA Masters in Germany

Last weekend some of the racing men’s Masters, Andy Napier, Peter Harvey, Colin Cracknell & Peter Hoile, along with the supporters club, wives & daughters, took up a very long outstanding invitation from one of our former members (when we were across the river), Jochen Kleinertz of the Akademischer Ruderclub Würzburg, (ARCW) Germany. We entered a MMH4x- in the Bocksbeutelregatta which is on the Main River every October. This is a head race for all classes of boats, from juniors to Masters. The course is 4.5km from the wine town of Randersacker  downstream to Würzburg, finishing by the rowing club. ARCW [...]

MAABC Masters Win at Molesey Regatta

  MAABC crews, some young and others a bit older, raced at Molesey Regatta on 21st July with some success. It was an extremely hot day that was a challenge to all who took part. Our men's masters won F/G/H quads beating Thames in the first race and Kingston in the final. In both races the MAABC Masters H crew dominated and won comfortably. The crew consisted of Peter Hoile, Colin Cracknell, Keith Mahony and Andy Napier. This was the fourth Summer regatta entered by our men's masters in a G/H quad and they have won in three regattas, Borne, [...]

Metropolitan Regatta: MAABC Senior Women hotter than actual surface of the Sun

The weather may have been roasting this past weekend as hundreds of rowers descended upon Dorney Lake for Metropolitan Regatta, but the MAABC Senior Women's Squad was hotter. Taking advantage of the 3 weeks of the year when Britain actually experiences sunshine, Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd June saw 5 MAABC crews competing across 4 different boat classes (plus an MAABC guest star rowing in a composite crew).  Knowing this was their last chance to experience competitive lane racing before Henley Women's Regatta, the girls came ready to eat, nap and row really, really fast. Saturday Saturday morning started nice and early [...]

MAABC Success at the Indoor Rowing Championships

Captain Nicola Dale writes that two members of MAABC won at the British Indoor Rowing Championships last Saturday with a third member also doing particularly well! Kaila Engelsman won the Open Women's event in a cracking time of 7:01.6 even writing this makes me feel exhausted.  We are incredibly proud of this and perhaps we should consider naming one of the new ergos after Kaila.  There is an excellent article on Kaila's success and her ambitions on the WeRow Life website. Additionally Jennifer Aitken came in 4th which was a superb effort with a time 7:19.1  - and thirdly Natalie [...]
