MAABC was out in force for the Vet Fours head and entered 7 crews and we came away with 2 Pennants! The course had to be shortened due to strong winds and rain, so the finished was moved to just upstream of Hammersmith Bridge. Beks Edgar, Caris Marsh and Lorna Brown joined by Helen from Thames RC, who had all raced the day before, won the WA/B 4- pennant! The WC 4x crew, Lisa Kallal, Pippa Ford, Christina Greenhalgh and Laura Campbell won the pennant for their category - well done! The WB 4x had a last minute substitution, thank you [...]

Last weekend saw the first head race of the season with over 400 entries attending the Pairs Head. The womens senior squad was able to be part of a composite crew with PTRC as well as field three other MAABC crews.

A fantastic result for the two of them. Their next challenge together is the British Rowing Championships this coming weekend The other MAABC crew fought hard and finished [...]
This year’s regatta will take the same format as last years in order to encourage everyone to participate.

So whichever squad you are a part of, and whether you want to race in a single scull or a crew boat, we would encourage you to come and race and then afterwards enjoy a BBQ [...]
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 [...]
