On Sunday 28 April, Gravesend RC entered 22 crews into Lea Spring Regatta. The majority of our crews made it through their first round, with four crews making it all the way to the final only to miss out at the last hurdle, which was really impressive given the number of crews for whom this was their first ever race. Four of our crews made it all the way and took home the prizes for their category: James Wilkinson and Matthew Johnson in the open doubles, Matthew Johnson in the open singles, Hope Farquhar, Alice Davies, Amelia Page and Jess Langan (cox Caitlin Page) in the women’s coxed fours and Lily Harris, Mira Padmasari, Gracjana Snieg and Alice Bowman (cox Caitlin Page) in the women’s coxed quads.
Congratulations to all our winners, and well done to all our rowers who took part – especially those who had their first race at Lea. Our next race is Peterborough on 1st and 2nd June.
