GBR Masters National Rowing Championships 201

Sons entered three events in the British Masters Rowing Championships at Holme Pierrepont.  The weather gods had laid on heavy rain showers for the weekend, perhaps with the Queen's outdoor birthday party in mind.  Conditions were nevertheless good for sculling and the regatta was as sociable as ever.  Ed sculled 1000m in under 4 minutes but that was not good enough to qualify for the final in a strong M.D.1x field.  Bruce, Les, Ed and Dave then came 4th in the M.E.4x final, a disappointment having beaten two of the medallists in the qualifying heat.  Les and Andrew comfortably won the M.D.IM3.2x final.   Among old friends, Rory narrowly missed bronze in an Agecroft M.D.4+ and Hugo took silver in M.F.4x for Star Club.
