After BUCS, Reading Amateur Regatta was a chance to get some valuable racing experience in crews for HRR and Henley women’s regatta respectively.
On the Saturday the M Nov 4+ narrowly lost to Manchester University in the final, with IM3 B8+ also reaching the finals. The M Nov 4+ and W Nov 8+ both reached the semi-finals, with the W Nov 8+ losing narrowly to Birmingham in the semi-finals by 3ft on the line.
The Sunday saw better results, racing on the shorter 1100m course, with our Men's 4+ winning the Elite category and Women's senior 4+ winning IM3. The women’s novice singles also got through to the finals, with W Nov 8+ reaching the semi-finals in IM3+.
Both days saw close side by side racing, with especially promising results in the men’s and women’s senior 4+s. Putting all crews in a strong position for the biggest events of regatta season approaching – Henley Royal Regatta and Henley Women’s Regattta.
