Historic first win for the Women’s Squad at Warrington Regatta!

Saturday 30th July saw the club take a number of crews over to the North West to Warrington Regatta. This was the first time that the club had travelled to the North West to compete in the North West region and we were not disappointed with the visit!

Winning Women’s Novice Coxed Quad

We had a number of crews competing on the day, with a mixed coxed four and double scull racing as well as a women’s coxed quad and women’s single scull.

The mixed coxed four of Bella, Amy, Max, Oscar and George (coxing) and double scull of Charlotte and George found themselves up against some highly competitive juniors from Trentham Rowing Club and lost out in both finals. Charlotte lost out to a strong sculler from Trafford Rowing Club so is still looking for that elusive novice single sculls win.

The women’s quad however did not disappoint. The crew of Ros, Claire, Amy, Bella and Charlotte as cox took on a coxed quad from Runcorn and won by one length. The ladies had been training hard together for the past couple of months and took on board lessons learned from losing at Bradford last month in the same event. They had a fantastic race and rowed with confidence to a historic first win for the women in the club.

This was a special win for all with all rowers learning at the club and Ros and Claire coming from last years Summer Learn to Row courses.

We would llogoike to thank Warrington Rowing Club for a fantastic day and use of boats and to our sponsor Andrew Earle’s Holidays for their support for our club rowers.
