2 Medals at Shrewsbury

The vet men traveled to Shrewsbury Regatta again this year.  A small contingent again this year but an event the Club has attended continually for the past 17 years.

This year it was medals not pots for straight final winners that masters events tend to become, but victory still sweet.

On the saturday Bill & Paul won their first event in the pair with the four losing to Nottingham.

On sunday Bill Paul Steve & Richard formed a composite eight with Pengwern, taking victory against the Stourport crew we raced last year – losing last time by 2 feet but ahead by half a length this year. –  so now one each with a re-match promised for next year.  The four raced well against a strong Derby crew that certainly deserved the honours
