NATIONAL SCHOOLS' REGATTA
Transport and training details now posted on the Fixtures Page + latest crew update.
Fixtures list updated with new fixture on Sunday 24 June to replace Henley Women's Regatta. Check the Fixtures Page NOW!
RGS Worcester secured four wins - our highest total for many years at this regatta - and everyone rowed well and showed off some fine sculling and sweep oar technique. And the sun shone!
Our winners were:
Women's coxed four: Darcy Simon, Francine Bath, Emma Little, Amelia Fish. Cox: Ellie Jones
Men's double: Alex Owen, Drew Dixon
J15 coxed quad: James Larkin, Malachy Larkin, Daniel Hall, Harry Lord. Cox: Olly Bailey
Men's single: Alec Berry OR Matthew Hill Both scullers won two rounds to get to the final where they were due to race against each other, however, as it was already past 7pm (scheduled final time was 16:37) we agreed with the organisers to race the final at Worcester next week, as the final would not have been run until 8pm otherwise.

To all our Senior rowers who worked so hard to clear the floor and bottom racks of the boat house yesterday. Not many of you were involved in rowing at the time of the last major floods so here are some pictures to show you how bad it can get. These floods were in February 2014 and caused a huge amount of damage to boats and equipment, this meant we couldn't row for several weeks. That is why we take flooding seriously!
