Saturday 27th January marked the first whole-club tideway race of the 2017/18 season. It was an excellent opportunity for our Novices to experience tideway racing for the first time, and for our Seniors to lay down some times in preparation for BUCS, Hammersmith Head and Head of the River.
A total of 7 crews raced, as follows:
All crews put in a great performance, the senior women in particular did well to hold their own amongst many crews racing alongside them. The Senior Men were very happy with how they’ve progressed, putting in a more racy and consistent performance than previous occasions.
The Novice squads had a brilliant time on the water. Whilst pacing was an issue for athletes due to this being their maiden race on the tideway, they definitely held strong, both top eights placing in the top 10 of their categories.
The club is really excited to build off these results & attack our next challenge, this time on the Tyne – at BUCS Head.
