City of Oxford Regatta
- Published on Thursday, 20 August 2015 10:14
We had a number of City crews racing at City of Oxford Royal Regatta on 15th and 16th August from our Junior squad and from our noivice men's squad.
The regatta is set over two days, Saturday is raced over 1000m and Sunday is a sprint race over 500m. All the City crews performed well with some strong results:
Our juniors (as always) turned up in force in mulitple boats,
on Saturday Pernille won WIM2 1x and our WJ15 4+ made the final.
On Sunday, Jack and Bartu fell short in the final of IM1 2- (some dodgy steering from the opposition) as unfortunately did our WJ16 2x.
For some of our juniors it was their last regatta as City Juniors as they now move onto the next stages of their careers. Best of luck guys - just make sure there's a river where you're going and don't forget to visit!!
The Juniors were also accompanied by an 8+ from our novice men who split into two fours on Sunday. One of our men's novice fours (two of which only learned to row a couple of months ago) stormed the competition to win Novice 4+'s! - Must be something about our learn to row course!
Congratulations to the guys in the four, always a great achievement to get rid of your novice status.
