GOLD AND SILVER MEDALS AT NATIONAL MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS

A small squad of 7 Guildford rowers competed at National Masters on 10th June at Nottingham.  With the conditions worsening as the day progressed, Guildford enjoyed success, winning Gold in WMas A/B 4x.  The crew comprised of Annika Gleichmann, Lenka Higley, Emma Pinchbeck and Jackie Johnson.  Lenka, in her first competition of this calibre,  came 3rd in WMas A 1x.  Annika and Jackie faced tough competition in WMas B 2x and fought through to gain Silver.  Well done to Helen Gray and Aimee Marshall who competed for the first time at WMas A 2x and gained valuable experience, and to Rob Hall who competed with Jeff Watling in Mas H 2x.

Huge thank you’s to Peter Scott for all his coaching and support, Eton Excelsior for towing to Nottingham, Richard Coldrick, Rob Hall and Paul Woowat for helping with organising and towing.
