The Boat Club was out in force on Saturday with the majority of the club racing at Bedford Star Regatta and the boys’ 1st VIII racing at Reading Amateur Regatta.
The boys’ 1st VIII had a very successful day’s racing at Reading and won senior 2 eights against a range of club and university opposition.
At Bedford we had over 60 pupils racing and plenty came away with a win:
- The girls’ Shell octo won their event, a fantastic first win for them in their VIII
- The J15 boys were very unlucky to lose against Eton in their VIII by just 6 inches. It is fair to say that most on the bank were rather surprised by the verdict as it seemed we were in front! They got their revenge in the fours by beating both Eton’s fours en route to the final before our A four beat our B four in the final of the J15 fours event.
- The J15 girls raced in both a quad and the VIII. They raced well in defeat in the final of the J15 quads event before winning emphatically in their VIII.
- The senior boys’ four raced very well indeed to reach two finals, winning one of them to win the J18 coxed fours event.
