On Saturday 21st April, 3 KRC crews ventured to Nottingham to represent Thames London in the Junior Inter-Regional Regatta. The club had great performances all round.
Our WJ16s continued their winning form, however this time in the coxless four. After qualifying 2nd fastest for the final, they went on to win gold by half a length over Lea RC (Eastern Region), despite some creative steering, exploring all sides of their lane, and a little of the lanes either side...
Our WJ15s were hoping to match last years performance in the WJ14 2x, where they won gold. After placing joint 4th at the Scullery just over a month prior, they knew some work would have to be done to get up into the medals. After qualifying 3rd for the final, the 4x+ went on to miss out on silver by just 0.03 seconds, coming away with bronze.
Our J14s were looking to improve on their 4th place at the Scullery too. However their chances were hindered after a slight hiccup in the heat resulting in a broken blade and a NRO. Racing instead in the B Final, the boys went out to dominate and prove a point, and prove a point they did indeed. The 4x+ absolutely dominated their final, winning by several lengths of clear water.
The Juniors will next be racing at Chiswick, the Junior Sculling Regatta and Wallingford Regatta.
