MAABC Club Regatta 2013 to take place Sunday September 29th

Wins for Masters Women at Henley T&V and Stourport Regattas

Henley Town & Visitors provided wins at both WMas D & E doubles for the Masters Women's squad, continuing their very successful 2013 season.

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 [...]
