All those that stayed Camping on Friday night were awoken by a terrific thunderstorm which has us jumping in our beds. The day started with reasonable weather and thankfully the Monmouth Regatta course offers plenty of shelter.
It was a tough start for many of the early races with many of the Staines Boat Club crews being knocked out of their events in the 1st heat. But by late morning it was the younger junior crews that lead the way. WJ14 2x, WJ15 2x, WJ16 2x and J16 2x. A fantastic performance from all the Junior athletes.
Then a spectacular WIN by the boys in the J15 Coxed Quad when beat the opponents by a considerable distance. To follow were the the girls in the WJ15 2x and WJ14 2x b
Sunday and the weather was perfect for Rowing with bright Sunshine yet not too hot, a slight breeze on the water to help cool those racing.
The Regatta on Sunday is a sprint race of 750 metres downstream. This distance seemed to suit the Staines Boat Club crews well with many qualifying through heats into the the Final. Our supporters had plenty of great Rowing action to watch and I'm sure that many of them will still have 'soar throats' today after shouting in encouragement of our racing crews. They were rewarded for their support because we achieved some wonderful WINS during the Regatta. We didn't have to wait long for the first WIN in Race 2 of the day. It was the boys and girl Coxswain
More WINS came from WJ18 4x- (Corless Quad) a strong crew these girls always manage to demonstrate a fabulous standard of sculling (Rowing with two blades/pars). And members of the same crew separated into two double sculls boats and went on to win W.IM3.2x and the WJ18 2x competitions and finally they regrouped again to race against club mates from SBC senior women's squad and won in the final of the W.IM1 4x- completion, each crew member achieving three wins during the day which is a truly spectacular result for these young ladies.
Another classic double sculls win came from the girls in the WJ15 2x who raced through heats leading and winning each of their races in some style. they are al
WEYBRIDGE LADIES ROWING CLUB REGATTA 2017 was held today on a beautiful part of the River Thames near Weybridge, Surrey. The weather with
bright sunshine and still waters in the Desborough Cut (a straight man-made channel in the River) were perfect for Rowing.
It was the turn of our Women's Junior 14 double sculling crew Olivia Bennett & Scarlett Jones to race. Again this competition was oversubscribed with junior race entries and the standard of Rowing in the Women's Junior 14 double sculls w event was extremely high. In their Semi-Final race our girls lined up at the start against an experienced crew from Walton Rowing Club. On the GO both crews put in a very good start. But after the fir
WALTON & WEYBRIDGE REGATTA 2017 and the Staines Boat Club junior Squad were back in action. The day started early with bright blue skies and a breeze blowing directly down the 1000m Regatta course. Due to recent rainfall the River was running fast, promising the chance of record fast times on the Regatta course. First up were the SBC two junior 15 women's doubles racing in two separate events both crews qualified for the Semi-Finals of their particular events. During the semi-final race both crews race well from the start but Maddie & Lydia did not manage to defeat their opposition. Ellie & Kathryn won and went on to win in some style.The final saw the SBC crew gain the lead early and stay t
THE BOYS & GIRL (in Charge) WITH THIER MEDALS. Its not often a Rower is able to say 'I won a medal at Dorney Lake' which is the spiritual home of the British Olympics and many other elite Regattas. I'm sure these SBC athletes will not forget the experience👍 CONGRATULATIONS to Will, Jayden, Mason & Harry and not forgetting the Cox Fi who was responsible for driving them to success on the water today.
