Worcester Autumn Regatta 2015

All good things have a start, and an end. Worcester Autumn Regatta represented the first away race for this year’s novice intake rowers, and the last race together for the fixed women’s 4+ crew of Shan (cox), Holly, Julie, Jonna and Hannah C. This was also Vice-captain Holly’s last regatta with the Academicals. Her crew did not let her down, pulling off an impressive finish with several lengths of clear water ahead of Warwick.

Due to a lack of competition, the Accies novice women were bumped up to IM3 for a straight final against the host club, who had won their semifinal against a mixed ability Accies IM3 crew consisting of some novices and some experienced rowers from the 1st VIII boat. Sadly, the women’s IM3 8+ victory was not ours this year, but the novice cohort was invigorated by their first taste of an external regatta and many are keen to stay on next year for more.

Art and Sonia flew the flag for the sculling squad at Worcester, entering in a mixed double and in singles. Sonia De Munari sculled to victory and won her first sculling point in the IM3 1x category.Worcester 2015 W4+
