Masters crews win 4 events at Barnes and Mortlake regatta

The 2012 Barnes and Mortlake Regatta was held on a blustery, sunny Saturday, more like April than June. There was a fast running outgoing tide for the morning races and a sluggish incoming tide in the afternoon.  There was a good turn out of the usual helpers manning the car park, catering and bar facilities, registration and boating areas (for which many thanks!). We had 4 winning crews: WMas B/C 4x: our B crew (Jo Gapper, Christina Greenhalgh, Kat Rolfsman and Anna Ramsden) raced a semi-final, beating Ardingly, then met our C crew in the final whose 5 second advantage [...]
