ROWING - SUCCESS FOR ROSS ROWING CLUB AT STRATFORD REGATTA

Ross Rowing Club's Junior Academy continued their success last weekend, with wins at Stratford Regatta. The WJ12 quad of Jess Saxon-Macrostie, Anna Barker, Gabby Howell and Frankie Crilly, coxed by Ollie Sturgess rowed up against a WJ13 quad from Worcester in their heat. They made a great start, pulling away from the older, bigger crew, beating them by three lengths. They met a WJ13 crew from Cardiff Vale in the final, rowing well and winning easily.

The WJ12 double of Naomi Banks-Martin and Jess Saxon-Macrostie won the WJ12 battle of the Ross crews. WJ14 single sculler Georgie Jones went one better than at Worcester, beating her Evesham opposition by a handsome margin in her final, and the younger academy members also gave a fine performance in the WJ12 sculls, eventually losing out to a strong sculler from the Upper Thames Rowing Club.

In the novice singles, J16 Charlie Green beat his Stratford opponent to victory easily. There was success for the seniors too. The ladies' novice four of Sarah Sykes, Alison Barker, Julie Brandram-Jones and Pam Ball, coxed by Sheron Dean-Lucas gave a strong performance to beat their opposition from Evesham Rowing Club, achieving the senior status that they have worked so hard for over the last 12 months. The final Ross win came when a mixed double crew of Pam and Tim Ball won their final against Stratford.

Junior Captain, Mark Scott said, 'It was a really excellent day for Ross Rowing Club. The spirit in which the Juniors and Seniors raced was a credit to themselves and to the club.'


Frankie Crilly, Adrienne Howell, Gabby Howell and Fran Watling won their races at Stratford Regatta easily.
