Win for Gabriella Tose at Stourport Regatta

Gabriella Tose joined Quintin BC once again at Stourport Regatta to race in her single and a double with her other half Tim on both Saturday and Sunday. She was keen to acquire one of the special edition pottery tankards they issued this year, and did so on the Saturday by winning WIM3 Ix - congratulations! Unfortunately losing IM3 status meant no racing in her single on Sunday, but this meant she could concentrate her efforts on the Masters 2x sprint race with Tim. In a straight final they narrowly lost to Ross RC - better luck next time! Gabriella's beautiful pot - congratulations! [...]

Senior Women medal at Nat Champs

A small group of just 3 members of the senior women’s squad made the trip to Nottingham for the British Rowing Championships this weekend, and all came home with medals. Due to changes in the way the British Rowing Championships are organised, only a limited number of events were available this weekend - singles, pairs, and coxed fours. Rebekah Edgar and Lorna Brown won the gold medal and the award of National Club Champions in the lightweight women’s pair. They had originally intended to race in both the heavyweight and lightweight pairs events at the regatta, but due to Lorna being a bit under [...]
