Broxbourne IM3 4+ Win again

Having just lost their novice status at Peterborough, and only losing once this season, the Crew were full of confidence and keen to continue.  So it was to be Bedford sprint Regatta where they would make their im3 4+ debut.

From studying the IM3 race times at Peterborough the crew knew they would be quick enough to be competitive so there was plenty of reason for them to be optimistic. The first race saw them line up against Medway who have had a good summer themselves, so this was to be tough IM3 debut.  Broxbourne started well and it was level pegging until the bend when Broxbourne edged their way in front. They extended their lead to a boat length and held them there until the last 100m, and despite a fight back from Medway our crew had enough to keep in front and crossed the line half a length in front.

The final saw Broxbourne take on Sudbury who beat a strong Norwich crew in their heat.  Pumped up and ready to row our crew flew out the traps and powered past their opponents with relative ease.  The Sudbury Crew looked broken and demoralised with nothing left in the tank, and with confidence sky high the Broxbourne crew kept the power down to win by 2 boat lengths.

Cox: E Lacy, Stroke – M fiddler, 3 – G Dunk, 2- R Mayes, Bow – A Mander
