Sudbury rows the Isis at Oxford City Rowing Club’s Regatta and Sprint

Sudbury’s scratch mixed eight

Members from Sudbury Rowing Club enjoyed taking part in Oxford City Rowing Club’s Royal Regatta and Sprint events over a fine summer weekend 19/20 August.

Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to row on this famous stretch of the Thames, known as the Isis locally. Tayla Bentley and Victoria Burgess were particularly impressive in winning the Women’s Pair event over 1k.

The Oxford event also provided a relatively rare opportunity to adaptive members Valerie Ingham-Boor and Luke Payne to compete in a well run regatta. Everyone else had a lot of fun, particularly those who came together to form a scratch mixed eight for the Sunday 350m sprint event, narrowly losing to an Oxford college crew from Wolfson College by a canvas.
