Rowing Update

It was a busy day for the boat club on Saturday with most racing at Reading University Head while our Shells were at Abingdon for our annual fixture. At Reading our boys’ 1st VIII produced a solid performance to finish fourth out of eighteen in their event and were the fifth fastest school VIII on the day. Our girls’ senior quad finished third in their event while the highlights of the day were the performances of the two Fourth Form VIIIs with both the boys and girls finishing second, a great result at a very high standard event.

At Abingdon, our Shells had their first rowing race of the year and all three crews acquitted themselves very creditably. The aim of the event was to give them all as much experience as possible and all three crews were able to win at some point during the afternoon with the C and A crews winning twice each. On balance, we just shaded the fixture, winning five out of nine races, and they will have learned a great deal from an action-packed afternoon.
