Rowing - Club Dinner Awards

The Novice / Intermediate Squads are our Henley competitors of the future and for those who may want less commitment than is required for senior rowing.

We look to welcome new members to the squad who have had previous rowing/sculling experience whether this was with other clubs and/or Universities. We also progress those who have participated and completed our ‘Learn to Row’ course, who wish to pursue rowing as a competitive sport. The coaches liaise with the senior vice captains to ensure development of these individuals to senior squads as appropriate.

Our aim is to compete at well attended regional head races and regattas. The main head races we attend include pairs head & fours head where we have previously entered a number of crews. We also look to participate in Henley head as well as Reading head & Kingston Head.

Having raced over the winter season at the heads, we enter the regatta season prepared to go side-by-side and compete at some of the regional regattas. These include the likes of Sudbury Regatta, Hammersmith Regatta & Lea Regatta. We also like to finish the regatta season off, racing at both St Neots regatta and Peterborough Summer, where we camp over the weekend for the two days of racing and enjoy a squad BBQ.

If you wish to join our Novice & Intermediate men’s Squad, Please contact Nathan Randall.

December Ergo Ladder

Posted by Craig Allan | January 27, 2011

The women turned up the training and showed up the men in December. Belinda and Amy pushed the standards to a new level with Belinda taking the top spot with a very narrow margin. Rowan Mckellar did well to take third place, but will struggle to keep it, now Louise Morris is back on the ergo. Adam Ridler topped the men’s list again. Results are in the members section.

Apologies for the late posting of the list. The January list will go up next week and I won’t be chasing people for scores. I’ve already seen some big scores from the men’s side and competition for HORR boats is heating up.

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!

 

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.
