This was our last race in 2021, and our men’s pair were keen to show their progress since UBBC Head Race. Walton Small Boats Head brought in a lot of competition from local schools and clubs in south-west England, making our pair the only university crew at the event.
Thank you to Walton Rowing Club for hosting the event, and to Doug and Mo from MTRC – they were racing as a double earlier in the day and lent their boat to our crew.
Results can be found on the Walton Rowing Club website.
Men’s pair (Op B2 2-)
Our men’s pair raced boats from Kings College School, Reading RC, and Maidenhead RC. The crew placed 3rd out of 4 boats, only 2.5 seconds behind the winners. They hope to develop the pair further at our Winter Training Camp, building to their final races at Kent later this year!
