The Masters Women's squad travelled to Nottingham for the British National Masters on Sunday 19th May. Reaping the benefits of excellent training over recent months, Laura Campbell, Chrissie Greenhalgh, Anna Ramsden & Jo Gapper got off to a great start in their straight final of WMasC IM3 4x, beating Falcon, the previous year’s winners, by a length. Next up were Alice Poole & Louise Pattison in an WMasD/E IM3 2x straight final - their first attempt at both multilane racing and stake boat starts! A respectable 4th place out of 6 was achieved for these Novice racers. They then headed back out [...]
The Senior Women's squad had an excellent first major race of the summer season at Wallingford Regatta on Sunday 5th May. For once Dorney was bathed in sunshine, and the crews took full advantage of the excellent conditions to put down a marker for the rest of the season. They came away with 2 convincing wins, in WElite 2x (Fran Rawlins and Anna Townsend - so much for retirement, Anna!) and WIM3 4+ (Claire Ridley, Therese Coen, Gemma Peck, Emily Walters, Nicola Glogowski (cox)). The coxed four also raced in IM2, finishing a creditable 3rd in the final. Full results [...]
The Diamond Jubilee Rowing Championships were held on 20-21 October 2012 at Dorney Lake. This was a new regatta, which promised a very high standard of racing as all athletes wishing to trial for the GB Squad this season were required to race in at least one event (excluding 2012 Olympians, although some of them did in fact race for their clubs). The regatta was also run under a new format involving lightweights and open weights all racing in the same event, with only 2 boat classes available on each day. Fran Rawlins and Anna Roots travelled to Dorney to represent MAA [...]

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!
