Julian Scrivener was on form with two victories as Upton won four events at Stourport Regatta. He faced regular rival Duncan Gwilliam from the home club in the masters E single sculls and won by just one foot after fighting back in a close finish. Joined by wife Tabitha in the mixed double sculls, Scrivener led throughout to beat a Stourport combination by one-and-three-quarter lengths. Upton double scull Linda Scott and Jo Hammett had a comfortable win over Evesham in the women’s masters E/F event. A men’s masters D coxless fours could not overcome an experienced combination from Pengwern, Shrewsbury.
At the sprint regatta the following day, Sally Miles and Debbie Thompson brought a fourth win in the women’s masters A/B double sculls. They dispatched Worcester in the semis and made it 2-1 in meetings with Liverpool Victoria by winning the final by four lengths. The Scriveners raced again in the mixed masters D double sculls but lost to Derwent by only one foot. James Oliver was in the masters A single sculls and masters A/B double sculls with Chris Evanson but despite strong rows lost to crews from Monmouth and Birmingham respectively.
