Worcester Regatta - 19th May

Lisa Dobson again flew the NRC flag on her own, this time at the Worcester Regatta. She beat Bedford in the quarter final by 3/4 length before beating hosts, Worcester in the semi by 1 length. This wasn't without controversy though as her opponent lodged a failed appeal over steering. Lisa came up against a very good sculler from Bedford in the final and sadly lost by 3 lengths.

Head of the Trent - 25th February

The women scored a fantastic win at the Nottingham Head of the Trent in the women's coxed fours. The crew consisted of Jayne Morris, Rachel Coowar, Heather Brown, Amy Walker and cox Niamh Rigby. The girls rowed superbly in bright but very cold conditions, to record the fastest time of the day in the W4+ category.

Their coach Chris Radford, was very understandably chuffed to bits with their performance.

Thanks to Chris for towing.
