On Sunday 3 crews travelled to Eton to race over the 2000m course that will host the Olympic regatta next year. The course is a multi lane course with up to 7 crews racing at the same time. The conditions were very difficult with the crews having to contend with high winds in particular at the start and the event was called off in the afternoon.
The Under 15 A crew who raced so effectively in the Junior Interregional Regatta again showed strength and character to win a place in the final of their event by overhauling high quality opposition in the last part of their heat. They were unable to race the final as the afternoon’s racing was cancelled due the weather conditions.
The Under 18 A crew of Charlie Cullen, Tom Klinge, Hal Bedford- Payne, Alex Watts and Tom Coles raced well in their first regatta together in the final of Under 18 coxed fours against a range of schools and rowing clubs including Eton and Maidstone Rowing Club whose crews included international oarsmen. They came 5th overall in a determined row showing potential for the future - particularly after being rammed off the start by another crew which meant the race had to be restarted.
The Under 16 A crew of Tom Dell, Jacob Williams, Oscar Fear Segal, Ed Chalmers and David Strange rowed the race of the day in the final of the Novice coxed fours for crews who have not won a senior race. They rowed away from the opposition by halfway with the exception of St Edward’s Oxford who pursued them to the line. The Under 16s showed composure and determination to hold onto their lead in the conditions and win the event.
Congratulations to all the crews for racing so well.
