Hi All

Seems a while since we did an update so here goes!!

Juniors

Firstly many thanks for to the organisers and volunteers that made the Junior Regatta such a huge success yesterday. It was a great showcase for what Maidenhead can do! There was some great racing with Maidenhead contesting several well fought finals, with Abbie, Amelia, Bethyn, Olivia and Ione in the cox seat winning the WJ13B event. 

Having had the benefit of being in the Umpire’s launch I was really impressed with the quality of all the Maidenhead crews, indeed all the umpires I carried remarked on how well the Maidenhead crews were sculling, a huge testament to them and the coaching teams behind them. Also big thanks to Robert Treharne-Jones (the Voice of Rowing!) for commentating and Jack Beaumont for the prize giving. Their presence made it a very special occasion.

Whilst this was going on we had a number of crews at the Junior Sculling Regatta at Dorney where again Maidenhead were successful.

The WJ15 girls entered four Double Sculls and a Single for the Junior Sculling Regatta at Dorney. The WJ15 Double Scull of Alexandra & Charlotte were the fastest boat in the time trial and then won the gold medal in the A final by the huge margin of 12 seconds with a phenomenal performance. Teresa and Esther came 5th in the B final but were the second fastest '2nd' boat overall. Tabatha & Serena and Tilly & Lizzie didn't get through the time trial but Tabatha and Serena only just missed the B final and were the third fastest '2nd' boat overall. Victoria, in her first ever singles race, qualified for the WJ15 A final and was leading the race at 1500m before catching a crab and capsizing in difficult conditions in the last 150m while in a medal position. Still an absolutely outstanding effort!

There was also a fantastic performance from the Junior Boys! Three Golds: for Harrison in J17 1x (23s faster than the next sculler); Ethan and Lewis in J17 2x and Sean in J18 1x (12s faster than the next sculler)! One Silver medal for Seth and Hugo in J15 2x (only 0.32 s off the winners)! 4th, 6th and 8th place in J17 2x, J16 1x and J15 1x for Daniel, Will, Sergio and Stephen. Well done boys!
