Saturday 2nd June saw the young rowers of Twickenham congregate at Twickenham Rowing Club for a fun regatta as part of Twickenham Festival. With passers by watching from opposite the club the rowers raced 350m from the bottom of the island finishing outside the club.
Division One in the morning mixed all the participants up into quads for some friendly racing.
Everyone put in a fantastic effort all working together with people they have never met let alone rowed with before! The mixed quad of Saskia Deykin (Radnor), Olivia Fuller (Radnor), Jess Nicholls-Mindlin (TwRC Juniors), William Kirk (TwRC), and Lena Mihic (TwRC) put in a brilliant effort to bring in a win for their team.
Divison Two in the afternoon had each squad's own crews compete against each other. Across three different events the winners were:
Boys Double Sculls - Charlie McManus-Burke (Radnor), Tristan Betty (Radnor)
Girls Double Sculls - Megan Morris (TwRC), Jess-Nicholls-Mindlin (TwRC)
Single Sculls - William Kirk (TwRC)
All the winners will be receiving their prizes at a formal prize-giving later this month.
Many thanks to all those who made the day a success!
