Sabrina Rowing News

Wednesday 13 January 2016


After missing out at HRR by such a small margin the majority of the crew are back in training for another crack at the Thames Cup in 2016.


It is so important that the basic training is done now in preparation for next year. Circuits are taking place on Tuesday evenings at school with a personal trainer giving the guys (plus Lettie and Sonya!) a great workout and outings arranged for most weekends.


The first head race took place on October 31st at Chester, where our boat came in 2nd and 4th overall in the two divisions, so certainly a step up on where we were last year. Especially with having to pull their coxing coach down the Dee!


You can read the separate news article on the Wallingford Head, at the end of November, here.


Many thanks to RSSBC for their support, also thanks to our new Sabrina President, Miles Preston, for his input.

Tom Marshall (SH 2007-12) is taking a year out from his studies at Harvard, where he has been rowing in their Varsity Lightweight Eight, to train at Caversham with the Senior GB Lightweight Squad. At the recent British Rowing Championships he won a silver medal representing Molesey BC in Open Coxless Fours alongside Mo Sibhi and George Nash (both from the World Championship winning GB 8) - they were beaten to the gold medal by a Leander 4, crewed by the likes of Pete Reed and Stan Louloudis (also from the GB 8). Bronze was won by another Leander 4 featuring Will Satch and Alex Gregory (also from the GB 8!). Not bad for a lightweight!


Lettie Tay (MSH 2013-15) competed in the most recent Senior Women’s trials in Boston, Lincs, where she came 9th out of the U20’s group. Lettie is also training with the Welsh squad in Cardiff. She won in her single at Chester, making her the first female Sabrina winner!


Claas Mertens (SH2007-8) rowed at 7 in the world championship winning German lightweight 8 this Summer.
