Enjoyable Nottingham City Regatta

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.
