National Rowing Success

During half-term our rowers competed in one of the biggest regattas of the season - the National Schools Regatta at Eton Dorney Lake. Completed over three days of intense racing, the rowers were tried by the tough competition but came out with some fantastic results.

The regatta was structured such that the crews completed a time trial and, from their resulting times, were placed into an appropriate final. Out of 54 crews, our Junior 14 boys quad finished the time trial with the fastest overall result and in what was a highly contested A final, the boys narrowly missed out on the gold medal by 0.3 of a second.  Overall, the regatta was an excellent experience for all our rowers as they were tested by crews from across the country and raced on one of the most prestigious Olympic courses.

Two weeks following their races at National Schools, some of our rowers attended Bridgnorth Regatta on 9th June. The club came away with some excellent results with wins for the J14 girls and boys in their doubles, the J14 boys in their quad and Antonia Molton (WJ16) who won in her single. All the crews raced and represented the school brilliantly and all the rowers should be very proud of their achievements.
