On Sunday 23rd April 16 Gravesend crews went to Lea RC. Despite this being the first race many of our juniors had competed in, we had plenty of good rows resulting in an afternoon full of finals. After our adult men missed out on their win by a bow ball, and an unfortunate crab scuppered our ladies double’s hopes, our juniors pulled through with an impressive win from our J16 ladies, followed by James Wilkinson taking the IM2 title (racing above his category).

Well done to everyone who raced, and especially our winners! The Club will be heading to Peterborough in June, where we hope to build on Lea’s spring success.
