Crews reap rewards in Peterborough

Cantabrigian Rowing Club had a successful time at the Head of the Nene in Peterborough.

They sent seven crews to the event, and brought back three wins and a second place.

Cantabs had two single scullers in the shorter 2,500m race in the first division.

Hadi Boukhatmi won the men’s Intermediate 2 event by 12 seconds, while Georgie Plunkett was second in the women’s Intermediate 2 category and was third fastest woman overall.

Hills Road Sixth Form College had four crews in the same division.

And the four of Shaun Rackley, Robert Oxford Pope, Finn Beauchamp, Eddie Crampton and cox Ben Whitelaw won the IM3 category over the 2,500m distance, and were the fastest coxed four overall.

The second four were racing as a quartet for the first time, and were 27th overall.

Hills Road’s first eight were 12th overall over 5,000m in 17min 49sec, and the second eight were 25th in 19min 50sec.

The senior women’s eight of Anita Holender, Cecilia Collins-Taylor, Merodie Rose, Bailee Stratton, Alice Brownjohn, Hannah Stewart, Sarah Inskip, Judith Weik and cox Leanne Fiddian were the fastest women’s eight, beating second-placed Nottingham Rowing Club by 29 seconds.

Steering through several overtakes and past two men’s crews, their time was better than six men’s eights.
