Saturday at Peterborough

Posted by Angela Watling | August 16, 2010

Winning WIM3.4+The weather this Saturday made Peterborough Summer an interesting event this year! During the first rounds of races that morning, in proper down-pours, both WIM3.2x crews (Sarah/Lizzie and Angela/Louise) unfortunately got knocked out in their heats. However, the WIM3.4+ of Katie, Charlotte W and two of our vacation students Charlotte L and Sarah M-P, stormed through their heat!

 

The day progressed with mixed success. The WIM3.4x- (Sarah G, Lizzy, Anne-Marie and Amanda) put up a good fight but were pipped to the post by Staines and Oxford City in their heat. The IM1.2x of Tom Jenkins and Robin Mould made it to the repechage. Tom suffered some back problems during their second race though, after he was hit by an 8 during training last week, so they didn’t make it through to the final. However, a good effort from the both given Tom’s injury and the fact they originally wanted to race IM2.

 

Steve, Graham, Matt and Dominic were racing IM3.4+ but didn’t make it to the final. They were back racing on Sunday also (although I don’t know the outcomes for Sunday!). The WNov.8+ all had a good close racing against City of Cambridge losing by no more than a length – well done to Belinda, Sue, Helen, Emma, Chloe, Penny, Jane, Liz and cox Ollie. Well done also to Helen who braved the single in the Women’s Novice category. She made it to the rep but after close encounters with waves, buoys and swans, she didn’t quite make it to the final!

 
Congratulations of the day go to Hugo and Andy who won in their MasD pair. The WIM3.4+ also repeated their success from the heat in both the semi and the final. So, congratulations also go to that crew, especially to Charlotte W who lost her novices!

A huge well done to Louise Morris and Angela Cook for their win at St Neots today, both losing their Novice sculling status. They beat Barnes Bridge by 2 lengths. A dip is in store soon ladies! Well done again!

Bedford Quarts – Race Report 2

Posted by Penny Scorah | July 19, 2010

Better late than never. Congratulations to Patrick Moody and Alex Goodwin on their wins at Bedford Quarts last week! Patrick fought off strong competition to win the IM3 single sculls event. Impressive considering he didn’t know he was entering the event until 2 weeks before! Alex won his final by a massive 5 lengths to take the J16 single sculls title. Broxbourne scullers rule!

Adrian’s coxed novice 4 won their first 2 heats (first 2 ever races for most of the crew) and lost in the final by a mere 1/2 length. Not bad for a bunch of ungraceful swans ( ok, I speak for myself when I say ungraceful ;o) Well done to Jo, Jane, Emma, Ollie and er me.

Many of the juniors got through to their finals. Congratulations to you all – Ruth McKellar in the W.J16.1x, Ruth and Emma Lacy in the W.J16.2x, Alex Stride and Ashley Wyatt in the J18.4x and the J18 quad.
