Novices win Winter League

City Men Win Winter League Novice 8's

On the morning of the Third Winter League Leg, City Novice A crew knew they had a six seconds lead on X-Press Legends. The first leg had been slightly disappointing after we fell apart through lack of fitness after the Railway Bridge. Our coach Ben Duckworth called for 5K erg sessions leading up to the final leg and which happened to coincide with the river freezing over, so more land training it was.

More Gold for Mighty

Mighty Ben Wins Gold for Wales

A bronze and a gold for Ben Redman in Ghent last weekend, he may have worn the Welsh kit but we know he was racing for City really!...

On Saturday it was the "International Belgian Championships", and on Sunday it was the "International Ghent May Regatta" (which is apparently the Belgian National championships). They're both held in Gent, which is a fantastic 5 lane course that finishes in Gent town, and has high banks and lots of trees/buildings around so it avoids the worst of side winds.
