Henley Masters Regatta, Burton Regatta and the Home International Regatta trials

Two rowers show off their medals at a very warm regatta in the East Midlands.

Sudbury Rowing Club had crews racing at three events at the weekend.

We had 3 crews competing at Henley Masters Regatta, racing over a 1000 metre course. (Sean Moriarty and Jeremy Milbank in the masters F double sculls event, Tracy Muir and Teresa Moriarty in the womens Masters D double sculls event and Tim Wallace in masters B single scull). All three had a first race against international opposition, with Sean and Jeremy and Tim winning through to the next round. Unfortunately both crews lost that next race, but just to race on the Henley course is an achievement and to win a race is quite special.

After his race at Henley on Saturday, Tim Wallace went on Sunday to Burton Regatta on the Trent. There he again raced his single and then joined up with Lydia Brown in their mixed double, winning both events.

Also on Sunday 4 Sudbury crews went to London Docklands to compete in the time trial races to see who would represent England in the Home International Regatta. Amelia Moule and Martha Bullen were in the womens double sculls event and Byron Bullen and Harry Moule were in the mens doubles. Sophie Brown and Luke Payne were in their respective Adaptive singles classes. The opposition was strong in all categories with the countries top crews competing. Luke Payne qualified in his category which is a real achievement and he will proceed to represent England in the Home International Regatta later this month.
