We had Tom Commins and Rob Eyres entered into the Wallingford Long Distance sculls. They were drawn against their old rivals from Nottingham and Pangbourne. They started strongly and had drawn level with Pangbourne, who had started first. However traffic on the river forced them to drop back and they struggled to regain the initiative.
In the final results they came in 3rd, however, with 15 seconds between them and the winning Pangbourne crew - they know they can do better
Tom Commins in Rob Eyres were entered into the Pairs Head on the tidal stretch of the Thames in London. This was a large event with over 480 crews entered. Their rivals from Nottingham were seen as their key competitors. They started last in their age group and by the end had overtaken 4 boats - they knew they had a good time but was it
good enough. A nervous wait clicking on the refresh button on the results web page for several hours paid off with a win by 2 seconds over the current national champions.
Sam Williams and Connor Howlett set off to Bedford for their first race. After a lot of hanging around at the start and despite having to almost stop when another crew got in their way they put in a great time. There was one other crew in their age group who were rowing in the last division of the day. After another long wait they found they had won by a handsome 50 seconds a fantastic result and only 5 seconds off the winning quad time which shows great promise for the future.
Next race 29th October in Marlow
