Gabriella Tose was keen to race at Worcester Autumn Regatta on the picturesque Severn below Worcester Cathedral and acquire at least one more ceramic pot before the end of the summer regatta season. She entered two races (WIM2 and WMastB) racing in a Worcester RC single. We are pleased to report that she won the WIM2 race - congratulations! - and missed the 2nd pot win by 6 feet!
Gabriella Tose joined Quintin BC once again at Stourport Regatta to race in her single and a double with her other half Tim on both Saturday and Sunday. She was keen to acquire one of the special edition pottery tankards they issued this year, and did so on the Saturday by winning WIM3 Ix - congratulations! Unfortunately losing IM3 status meant no racing in her single on Sunday, but this meant she could concentrate her efforts on the Masters 2x sprint race with Tim. In a straight final they narrowly lost to Ross RC - better luck next time! Gabriella's beautiful pot - congratulations! [...]
The Masters Women's racing group had a great time at Richmond Regatta on Saturday 23 June, and despite the fast tide, blustery conditions and absence of masters' categories, came away with two excellent wins! Anna & Kat won their IM3 2x event, beating Quintin in the first heat, Latymer in the semi-final and Barnes Bridge Ladies in a close finish in the final. Holly was on fine form and disposed of her novice sculling status after comprehensively beating Globe in the first heat and again in the final. Jo and Gabriella got off to a good start [...]

The 2012 Barnes and Mortlake Regatta was held on a blustery, sunny Saturday, more like April than June. There was a fast running outgoing tide for the morning races and a sluggish incoming tide in the afternoon. There was a good turn out of the usual helpers manning the car park, catering and bar facilities, registration and boating areas (for which many thanks!). We had 4 winning crews: WMas B/C 4x: our B crew (Jo Gapper, Christina Greenhalgh, Kat Rolfsman and Anna Ramsden) raced a semi-final, beating Ardingly, then met our C crew in the final whose 5 second advantage [...]
