We have a very active junior squad and all members up to age 18 are aligned to this squad. The juniors train separately from adult rowers due to different coaching requirements and child welfare considerations; this is why if you join with your child you will not learn on the same course. On occasion, juniors and seniors may row together under the direction of the Junior vice-captain. Please speak to the Junior vice-captain if you have a child who is interested in rowing.

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.

British Rowing Championship Results

Lightweights weigh in sheet with silver medal

With the help of the Lea Rowing Club, Broxbourne managed to get its boats to Strathclyde Park for the 2010 British Rowing Championships. (Many thanks Lea!) Broxbourne initially entered three crews but that later rose to four. The junior quad unfortunately went out in their heats. Alex Goodwin not only won Bronze in the Open Junior 16 Single Sculls, but also sat in a coxless four for Durham School at the eleventh hour and won a Bronze medal for that too! The senior men, after a diet of Rivita and Skinny Latte’s entered the lightweight coxless fours and came away with a Silver medal, missing out on the Gold by 1/2 a length. Well done boys! Congratulations to all involved!

Medals
Open Lightweight Coxless Four: Chris, Craig, Adam, Graham – Silver
