Henley Town & Visitors provided wins at both WMas D & E doubles for the Masters Women's squad, continuing their very successful 2013 season. Helen Mangan and Nicky Dale won at WMas D2x, with Alice Poole and Louise Pattison taking the WMas E 2x win. Alice and Louise were competing against an older, WMas F, crew so there was a staggered start, with the MAABC crew being set off behind their opponents. They were undeterred by this, and put in an excellent performance to row through their opponents and win comfortably - this result was the first win for both Alice [...]

The girls received medals for both the events and were awarded the Iris [...]

Gabriella Tose was keen to race at Worcester Autumn Regatta on the picturesque Severn below Worcester Cathedral and acquire at least one more ceramic pot before the end of the summer regatta season. She entered two races (WIM2 and WMastB) racing in a Worcester RC single. We are pleased to report that she won the WIM2 race - congratulations! - and missed the 2nd pot win by 6 feet!
