The Accies raced admirably at the Worcester Spring Regatta, 2015, coming home with some pots and some sunburns! After some trailering issues which resulted in both men’s and women’s squads borrowing boats from the Worcester Boat Club, the accies managed to get in some great racing. The men’s squad put out a coxed four, which ran a close race with their opponents, but ultimately came in second. The women’s IM3 8+, racing in an old tub of a men’s boat, came out ahead of Worcester Uni Women to win their race. The women’s IM3 4+ was equally overboated, and couldn’t quite hold off Worcester Uni’s 4.
There was quite a bit of confusion on the start line throughout, resulting in mix ups in the scull racing (indeed some sculls seemed to actually disappear for several hours), but all in all it was a great day of racing. Well done to the scullers, and to the mens squad and women’s squad for such a successful day despite racing in unfamiliar boats!
