Next up were Alice Poole & Louise Pattison in an WMasD/E IM3 2x straight final - their first attempt at both multilane racing and stake boat starts! A respectable 4th place out of 6 was achieved for these Novice racers. They then headed back out [...]

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! [...]

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 [...]
