RSSBC: J15 crews at the Schools' Head

Friday 23 March 2012

Our three J15 crews all raced really well on their first-ever outing on the Tideway; the J15As even managed to scoop a Silver medal, beaten only by St Paul's - who had the great advantage of familiarity with this tricky stretch of water.

After an immensely helpful guided tour of the course in a launch, courtesy of William Powell at Thames Rowing Club, the three coxes negotiated the difficult Tideway course with real expertise, and all three crews performed very well.  Particularly noteworthy, however, was the J15 A VIII.  Out of some 58 J15 crews in the race, our A crew came away with the Silver Medal, only St Paul's managing a faster time.  It was a stunning and gutsy performance from a crew who are showing more and more promise with every passing week, and bodes well for the regatta season.
