RSSBC: Internal Match – Sunday 17th November

Monday 18 November 2013

On a crisp Sunday afternoon the J16 squad challenged the J14s and J15s to a race. To make things a littler fairer, the J16s raced in coxless pairs, the J15s in coxed fours and the J14s in octuples.

J15 4+

The winning J15 4+ Harry Marshall, Bentley Moss, Rory McKirdy, Rory Davies and Guy Cabral (cox)

A number of the J14s were competing in their first race, so a number of important lessons were learned, and they raced well to post some good times.

The more experienced boys of the Fourth and Fifth Forms recorded times that were very close. At the top of the time sheets it was the J15 4+ of Harry Marshall, Bentley Moss, Rory McKirdy, Rory Davies and Guy Cabral, who were only 1.4 seconds ahead of the fastest J16 pair of Henry Thomas and Tom Sykes.

A superb afternoon of racing with the future of the Boat Club on show.
