Enjoyable Nottingham City Regatta

Posted on 20 of May, 2015 by in Website

4 crews from UYBC travelled to Nottingham on Saturday for Notts City Regatta. The Senior Men’s IM2 pair of Tom Eames and Matt Bowman proved they had the nerve to deal with a tough finish, placing 2nd in their final and holding off 3rd by 0.3 seconds.
The Men’s double of Tom Noble and Lloyd Hughes made their crew debut in the Novice 2x, coming 2nd to the St Edwards pairing and getting some valuable regatta experience.
After overcoming injury earlier in the week, the Senior Women proved nothing is too challenging for them. The 4+ made up of Fran Howes, Silvia Rampton, Abbie Flanagan, Katrina Beveridge and Maddi Belsey-Day finished first in their heats before placing 4th in a tough final. They have their aims well and truly set on Henley Women’s Regatta.
The second crew consisting of Lily Georgia Papworth, Hagar Geula, Lisa Worthington, Holly Walmsley and Serena Ward put in a fantastic row in their heats, finishing 6th against some tough opposition.

Roses and BUCS Round Up

UYBC has had a very successful fortnight.

Saturday the 25th April saw UYBC defend the Ouse in spectacular fashion seeing off all 8 Lancaster crews to contribute 24 points towards York’s points.

The May Day bank holiday weekend saw UYBC racing down at the National Water Sport Centre at the BUCS Regatta. Last minute crew changes due to injury left the Novice Men slightly disappointed with their results. Injury also plagued the Senior Women causing them to scratch one of their intermediate fours. It wasn’t all bad news as the Senior men placed 6th in the C final of the intermediate 8s and 2nd in the B-final of the intermediate 4x, Steph placed 2nd in the B final of the intermediate 1x for the senior women who also made the B final of the intermediate 4+ but had to scratch due to injury. The novice women also put in a good show placing 3rd in the C final of beginner 8s.

The Senior Men are racing in HoRR on Saturday on the Tideway in London. The race starts at 14:15 and runs from Mortlake to Putney. There are 390 crews racing, that’s 3120 oarsmen and 390 coxswains so should be a spectacle!
Our crew is number 82 so will be one of the earlier crews. There will also be a number of alumni racing for their clubs as well!

The Senior Women had a great race on the Tideway coming 93rd overall.
The Senior Men set the time for the fastest 4+ of the day at Yorkshire Head of the river and second in IM3.1x.
The two novices squads both had very similar and successful days on the Ouse with their 1st and 2nd 8s placing 3rd and 7th respectively. The Novice men losing out to two particularly strong Newcastle University 8s, one of which posted the second fastest time of any crew for the day.
