River Medway, Maidstone

Our men’s pair travelled to Maidstone for their first race of the year, excited for some local competition.

Thank you to Maidstone Invicta Rowing Club for hosting the event, and to MTRC for arranging transport – particularly Doug and Mo, who were racing as a double earlier in the day and lent their boat to our crew.

Results can be found on the Maidstone Invicta Rowing Club website.

Men’s pair (Op 2-)

Our crew came 3rd out of 4 crews, competing against Maidstone Invicta RC, Ardingly RC, and The King’s School, Canterbury. Though they had a slight wobble with their steering 750m into the course, they were able to recover and finish strong. Both Ewan and Will are looking forward to racing soon at Head of the River Race in a composite VIII with rowers from MTRC and Gravesend RC.
