Marlow Regatta

Posted by Chris Scorah | June 19, 2010

Saturday 19th June saw the men’s squad make their last trip to Dorney lake for 2010 for Marlow regatta.  We were a little worried about our heat and were expecting to be scrapping to make the rep.  After a dreadful warm up paddle, we somehow managed to put together an awesome start and found ourselves a length up at 700m.  The rowing went a little down hill from there, but we comfortably held on to the lead to win by a length and secure a place in the final.  Unfortunately the final was a bit of a disaster with a boat stopping crab about 20 strokes in leaving us 15 seconds behind the field and racing the umpires launch.  Not a great end to the day.  We must now pick ourselves up to restore confidence and prepare for Henley.

Senior Men win at Reading Reagatta 2010There were glum faces on Saturday morning as a last minute change to the crew left the VIII(I) feeling a little less confident than usual. But in true Broxbourne style they pulled it together just in time to storm to victory and beat the Reading VIII by 4 lengths in the final.  A fantastic win for the senior men and special congratulations to Alex and Cally who gained their first win at senior level!

Crew ~ Chris Scorah, Craig Allen, John Hounsell, Alex Goodwin, Rob Alexander, Graham Everett, Simon, Chris Turnbull, Cox: Cally, Coach: Matt Stallard.

Met Regatta

Posted by Chris Scorah | June 7, 2010

The weekend of 5th/6th June saw the Senior Men’s squad travel to Dorney lake for the Met Regatta.  We entered IM1 VIIIs on the Saturday and an IM1 coxless IV on the Sunday.  The VIII was fortunate to have a straight final in the afternoon so we were able to have a morning paddle at the club and before packing up and heading to Dorney.  We came third behind Imperial and Radley.  Importantly, we had closed the gap on Radley by about 4 seconds from Wallingford.  On Sunday, we came third in our heat, narrowly putting out a UL crew, and then came 3rd in the final.  No wins, but another set of very promising results.
