On Saturday 7 December, two seniors and four J16 rowers raced at Scullers Head. Faye, VI, discusses the day’s events:
The course ran from Chiswick Bridge to Putney, with over 500 rowers taking part. For several of us it was our first time racing in single boats, a daunting trial from which we gained valuable experience, although it was slightly unnerving that we set off whilst the sun was rising, only to return as it was going down! Luckily, predictions of high winds and extreme cold proved false on the day, and everyone did extremely well. A huge congratulations to Abby, VI, for placing 4th in the women’s J16 category, and many thanks to our coaches for helping us come this far and continuing to support us in our training.
