Venue: Away

Win Womens Open 4+: Mia, Cleo, Nora, Chessy, Lily

This half term, members of the boat club were kept busy between races and training. Despite varying weather conditions, all rowers showed amazing commitment and every session was completed with clear motivation.

Selected crews were entered for three different races during the 2 weeks; Norwich Head, Fours Head and Isle of Ely Head. Unfortunately, due to poor weather conditions, Norwich Head and Fours Head were cancelled. However, on the 5th November, 3 crews travelled to Ely to race on the 5km straight river. Despite strong cross and head winds, all rowers performed exceptionally well. Joschka Molenaar and Daniel Conway raced their double in the 1st Division producing the fastest time in the 3km course in just 13:36, coming first in their category. In the 2nd Division, Mia Garvey, Francesca Humphrey, Cleo Gregory, Nora Ostergaard and Lily Nguyen raced in their W4+, finishing the long 5km course in 26:01, overtaking their opponent in the first 500m, and winning in their category. Finally, the boys 8 with Archie Wilkins, Max Stone, Daniel Neville, Nick Conway, George Bellinghall, Reuben Francis, George Davis, Ted Bowyer and Darcy Wilkins raced in Division 3 completing the 5kms in 19:50, putting them 4th in their Op 8+ category, narrowly missing 3rd position by only 10seconds.

As we begin the second half of Michaelmas Term, selected crews are prepping for their next few races in the coming weeks. Good luck to everyone !!
