Crews reap golden glory
Four wins were earned by Cantabrigian Rowing Club crews at a double header in Nottingham.
They proved to be the most successful Cambridge-based club across the weekend, which featured the City Regatta and the club and masters’ regatta.
Millie Perrin, Bailee Stratton, Harriet Cross, Georgia Vann and cox Esther Momcilovic were clear winners in the women’s intermediate two coxed fours event in the morning, and they were then second in the higher intermediate one event in the afternoon.
Georgie Plunkett won the women’s intermediate two single sculls, and racing in the elite women’s lightweight single sculls was fifth behind athletes who have competed at GB Rowing trials.
On the Sunday, Alice Brownjohn and Emma Dalrymple were competing in their first regatta in a sculling boat and were second in the women’s novice doubles.
Gill Cooper, Judith Weik, Sue Waterhouse and Sue Hakenbeck comfortably won the women’s masters C coxed four, and then clinched a second win in the women’s masters C coxless fours.
The crew is now looking ahead to racing at the British Masters’ Regatta and Henley Masters Regatta in a few weeks.
The Hills Road Sixth Form College boys’ crew used the event as preparation for the National Schools’ Regatta.
The novice eight narrowly missed out on getting into the final, finishing third out of six.
The intermediate three eight were fourth in a race won by St Paul’s, while Eddie Crampton and Sam Gibbs were second in the novice pair.
