BRC Rule the Roost at British Masters Championships

Posted by Graham Everitt | May 23, 2013

After just missing out at last year’s regatta, Broxbourne’s Masters team have returned to the Lea victorious.


The Harry Harvey Cup
With a margin of just 5 points over our local rivals at the Lea, the Victor Ludorum, known as The Harry Harvey, has been awarded to Broxbourne along with a prize of £1,000.


The commentary team were giving regular updates throughout the day, so everyone knew that we were in the hunt with it all to play for in the last few events of the day. Thankfully, in our last two races the D4x managed to step up their game and bring home gold (rumours are they’ve actually been training instead of just drinking coffee) and the women’s novice Masters C 2x picked up silver and 6 points with just a few races to go to help us stay ahead of the rapidly closing Lea.


At just a few minutes past 8 a.m. the day had kicked off with a bang with gold for the mixed 8, followed shortly after by gold in the A1x from Adam Ridler. The mixed C8+, B8+, and D4x all followed suit throughout the day with more gold medals and, crucially, maximum points to add to our tally in the competition for the VL.


There were many silvers too, with Craig Allan following Adam Ridler home in the A1x, then the A4x, mixed C/D4x, the women’s A4x, the B4-, and the women’s novice B 2x.


The day was enormous fun for all competing – close racing was a feature of nearly every event this year, and the standard of the competition continues to rise each year. The previous day had seen Broxbourne’s quad win the IM1 quads at the Nottingham City Regatta also, so the weekend was a profitable trip all-round.


All who competed owe coach Martin Tate a big thank you for orchestrating the campaign to win the VL, helping to put crews together, organising the trailer and getting our boats up there too!
