Evesham Regatta

A report from Ron on the URC entries at Evesham Regatta:

We had six Upton entries at Evesham Regatta today. Our only winner was Jack Gibson, who won the Junior 18 single sculls . Jack was also the runner up in the same event on Saturday over a longer course. IMG_0478 In addition:

• Toby rowed well in his first appearance in Novice sculls, maintaining an overlap throughout the race but eventually lost his DSC_1040heat by three quarters of a length to a sculler from Hollowell Scullers

• Jo and Linda were unable to find any Masters opposition so had to enter the Intermediate 3 2x event. They lost by about two lengths to the eventual winners from City of Oxford, who were at least 35 years younger than them!

• Sally and Debbie had the same problem (no Masters opposition) and also lost to the same City of Oxford crew.

• Andrew and Jeremy were beaten by a tidy-looking crew from Huntingdon in Masters E/F 2xDSC_1053

DSC_1062• Andrew bravely made his debut as a single sculler in blustery conditions and coped well but lost to a sculler from Stourport

A useful pipe-opener to the season even if we didn’t come away with much in the way of victories this time.
