Shrewsbury Regatta

 We sent a few crews to Shrewsbury Regatta on 14th May.  It's a lovely regatta on the Severn held by Pengwern Boat Club and along the picturesque stretch of the river by Shrewsbury School.  Conditions were showery with a gusty head wind along the course.

The WMasD 4+ crew (below) of Jonty Moore Cox, Clare Briegal (S), Carole Riddell (3), Elaine Hemsted (2) and Carolyn MacRitchie (B) beat Pengwern in the final in a closely matched race by 1/2 length.

The WNov 4+ crew of Andy Morrison (Cox), Kerry Clarke (S), Clare Holt (3), Sue Easton (2) and Vicky Cheshire (B), came through the first round beating De Montford University but were knocked out by Grosvenor (the eventual winners of this event) in the semi-final.
