Congratulations to our Womens Masters Novice 8+ crew, who had a great win at the Vesta Veterans' Head of the River Race yesterday.

WMas8 Mar2016

The crew (from stroke): Belinda, Jayne, Steph, Helen, Alex, Suzie, Maggie, Kate (coxed by Charlotte Crane from Pangbourne).
They completed the course in a time of 23:15, third fastest in their category (Womens Masters Novice) behind a B and a C crew, but convincing winners on adjusted time.  Their raw time put them 190th overall (166th on adjusted time).  The really significant achievement though was putting out a Womens Masters eight formed from club members who are relative newcomers to the sport and showing that they can be really competitive on a big stage.  So proud of them all!
The crew performance on the day was outstanding, a true piece of teamwork.  They were full of enthusiasm and commitment and it was thrilling to see their hard work really paying off.
