Rowing and Regattas

All those not interested in rowing, look away now!

I just got sent through some pictures of our races at Peterborough Regatta the weekend before last. My womens' crew came 3rd (out of 4 in our heat) but it was close, and a great race.

James' crew were pipped to first place twice on Sunday. As the second placed boat the first time round, they went on to the Repecharge, and then came second again, just missing out on the final by fractions of a second! But they were pleased with their performance.

We're currently heavily into Bumps training (the Bumps races are on the 20th-22nd July), and its going well. James is coaching my W2, and I feel that we have got potential to do pretty well. James' M1 beat the club record for a 2.6km head course and recorded a time fo 9.19 at the X-Press Head on the Cam on Monday night, which they were very happy with.
