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 [...]

MAABC on Gloriana

On Sunday 24th September the sun shone for MAABC’s outing on the Queen’s Rowbarge Gloriana, created to mark her Diamond Jubilee. Some 19 rowers and a dozen passengers assembled as per organiser Peter Robert’s instructions on the dot of 10am (well give or take 25 minutes), all successfully clad in MAA kit (though of varying era and number of layers). We were briefed on how to row her - fixed seat, square blade paddling, no buttons or gates, long strokes – and the need to be able to “toss the blades”, then we went aboard. There was much interest in [...]

Wins for Masters Women at Henley T&V and Stourport Regattas

Henley Town & Visitors provided wins at both WMas D & E doubles for the Masters Women's squad, continuing their very successful 2013 season. Helen Mangan and Nicky Dale won at WMas D2x, with Alice Poole and Louise Pattison taking the WMas E 2x win. Alice and Louise were competing against an older, WMas F, crew so there was a staggered start, with the MAABC crew being set off behind their opponents. They were undeterred by this, and put in an excellent performance to row through their opponents and win comfortably - this result was the first win for both Alice [...]

Masters Women’s squad win at Marlow
