The senior mens squad raced at Reading Regatta over the weekend of the 10th/11th June. At the same time a sizeable contingent travelled up to Nottingham to race in the British Masters.
The best result of the weekend was a confidence boosting win for the mens coxless four (Toby Perren, Jon Daniels, Alex Wildy and Toby Dixon) in the top event at Reading Regatta on Saturday. Reading is a tricky course to steer and the strong cross wind didn’t help either but the crew raced well to win the final by four lengths.
The Thames Cup A crew drew Radley in the first round and went down by 1 length pushing Radley to the fastest time of the day. The Thames Cup B crew had a bit of a blinder in the first round beating the Shiplake College second eight. They couldnt quite replicate that form in the second round losing to the University of the West of England by about a length.
On Saturday there were wins for Lea in WA-C eights, stroked by Sara Cinammon with Louise N, Iva, Anna, Geraldine, Liz subbing for an injured Sara R, Gail and Weibke, coxed by Abi. There were also wins for WD-F 4- of Jennie B, Maribel, Gail, Liz as well as a WA-C 4+ of Jane H, Sophie, Paula Jane, Caroline coxed by Poppy. On Sunday the Nottingham wind blew up and racing was abandoned mid way through the day but not before another win this time in A-C singles by Alessio Cardella who battled through the headwind and waves to take a well earned win.
Next up for the adults is Henley Womens Regatta and Marlow.
