4 Pairs Head Pennants for MAA

Firstly, many thanks to everyone who helped make yesterday’s race work so well. Races can't run without lots of volunteers and we provided launch drivers and marshals in the form of Luke, Hannah and Chris while Sharika and Barry ran around the beach collecting wellies and numbers and Keith sorted out lots of visiting clubs (proving we can (just) fit 4 trailers on our lawn) and Giselle provided the visitors with refreshments and the sun shone and everyone was friendly and we had some lovely compliments from our visitors.   One of these came from the City of Cambridge mixed double who [...]

Euro Masters in Munich – MAA medals

Sarah, Lee and Club Captain Hilary went to Munich last week for the European Masters Regatta and raced in a range of composite crews in a mix of sculling, sweep and coxing. Lee won G4x and H4x, Sarah and Hilary won WF8s together and Sarah also won WF4x and WE8 and Hilary won coxing medals in WG4+ and, with Quintin, in F4+ and G4+. It was great fun and excellent to mix with lots of other UK and Irish clubs who had also made the trip over. Next year the World Masters are in Brandenberg near Berlin (this year they [...]

England success and Staines win

Recently Jen and Katy raced for England in the Home International in Ireland, with James as coach. England’s crew selection policy meant they raced in the 4+ and 8 rather than the 2- they won trials in - with their first crew outings the day before the race - and this after a 17 hour coach journey to the venue of Lough Rinn. This was first and foremost a team event and credit to the girls (and James) for finishing second to Scotland in both boats and helping England win the Senior Women’s event. We are very proud of you!

Veterans Head pennant!

Congratulations to the Women’s Masters D4x of Caroline, Anna, Kat and Jo - who won their Veterans' Head pennant last weekend by just over one second from long term rivals Eton Excelsior.  Well done also to the G4x crew who swapped from sweep to sculling as their 8 fell victim to injury and illness and came third in their class, to the Women’s B8 who came 5th and to the MAA/TTR G8 who came 4th. Many thanks to all the club members who helped out over the weekend - especially the launch drivers and umpires without who these events could [...]

Another head – another MAA pennant

Congratulations Jen Bailey and Katy Brooks, who won the Intermediate 2x pennant by 5 secs over TSS  in today’s pairs head. They were the third fastest women’s crew overall - beaten only by Leander and Reading University Championship doubles. No hoped-for Masters pennants - Kat and Caroline produced a very fast time in Masters E2x but lost out to a Henley crew. There was a great atmosphere at the club - on the beach beforehand and on the balcony afterwards. A great advert to visiting clubs. Many thanks to all members who gave their time this weekend to make this [...]
