Tremendous Shrewsbury Regatta

A huge team of 21 crews, ranging from Year 3 to Sixth Form, put in a tremendous effort in mid-May’s Shrewsbury Regatta.

Organised in a “knock out” style, almost every crew raced twice over the 1km course either progressing into the semi-finals and then finals or falling back to compete in various plate competitions.

Every crew rowed with great gusto and determination, learning from mistakes from previous races to improve on them in the next. This proactive learning, as well as a great season of training, lead to a day of great results, with The Grange coming home with eight first place finishes. We must acknowledge the huge effort put in by all the rowers, winners on the day or not, as well as the enormous input from parents and coaches.
