RSSBC: J15s win at the North of England Head

Tuesday 19 March 2013

A pleasant spring morning greeted us on the Dee upon arrival at Chester for the annual North of England Head on Saturday 16th March.  Although this is one of the last Heads of the season, it is a very testing run over 5000 metres.

Our A crew knew this would be their last chance to shine before moving into regatta mode for the summer term and shine they did, not only winning their event by a considerable margin, but also coming 10th overall meant that they beat 25 adult mens 8’s. Not bad, with three 14-year-olds in the boat

The boys now have a stiff ergometer test this week and then a 5 day training camp on the Thames during the Easter holidays.
