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 [...]

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!

MAA 4x makes semi finals of Henley Women’s Regatta

Last week saw our girls 4x of Hannah, Rebecca, Jen and Katy racing at Henley Women’s Regatta in Aspirational 4x. The crew comfortably qualified through the time trials and then won their heat and quarter finals easily - getting us all very excited about the possibility of a shot at the final. Alas steering issues in the semis meant this wasnt to be - but we are very proud of what this new combo has achieved this year and what could still be to come.   (Image courtesy of Ben Rodford Photography)

Four pennants at Bedford Spring Head

  James took a trailer of smaller boats up to Bedford yesterday to race through the many bridges there. The format of the event, with multiple divisions over a relatively short course, allowed for lots of doubling up and the girls will have known the bridges well by the end of the day.   Lots of excellent results - too many to list here but the 4x of Rebecca, Katy B, Jen and Jade won Band 1 4x, Fran and Katie B won Band 2 2x, Katie R and Sophie LW won Band 3 2x and Katy B and Jen [...]

Great results at the Head of the Nene

The senior girls went north on Saturday to enjoy the tranquil waters of the River Nene at Peterborough. Flat tyres on the trailer and a truck reluctant to start made for some challenges for James - thank you Kevin and Paul for helping out here - and who had a 14 hour day out from the club. Luckily the results made the trip worthwhile. Division one over the shorter course saw Barbara and Victoria racing in Women’s Masters and Women’s Band 2 1x respectively and Katy B and Jen in Women’s 2x - but for time only as the sole [...]
