Fran Rawlins and Anna Townsend won the Senior Lwt 2x trophy at Henley Women's Regatta yesterday, beating Wallingford RC by an "easily" verdict in very blustery conditions - congratulations!

A more detailed report will hopefully follow soon!

The MAA crew finished ahead of Wallingford and Ardingly to win the IM3 event and, then improving on their previous times at Nottingham, gained a convincing win against Falcon in the championship level race. The girls received medals for both the events and were awarded the Iris [...]
The Senior Women's squad travelled to Dorney on 1st and 2nd June to race at Met Regatta in glorious sunshine.

On the Saturday, the standout performance of the day was Fran's 2nd place in Senior 1x, after winning her heat earlier in the day. She was narrowly beaten by Charlotte Taylor of Putney Town, significantly closing the margin from the GB Final Trials and Wallingford [...]
