1/7/2018: Ironbridge Regatta Open 8+
A month has passed already but at the beginning of July, we had a weekend of firsts at Ironbridge this weekend. First experience of weekend regattas for many; first regatta of any sort for our cox Nick, as well as for David and Dan, all three of whom graduated from our 2017 Learn To Row courses; and most importantly a win in the Open 8+ on Sunday – the first in a long time for the Accies men’s squad, bringing first event wins and pots for five of the nine crew members.
We’ll be aiming to take some belief from this result into upcoming regattas at Bewdley, and on our home stretch in Oxford.
Congratulations to the winning crew, and thanks to Ironbridge RC for hosting us and to City of Oxford RC and Abingdon RC for making it an enjoyable trip.
Cox Kanellakis. Crew: Hedges, Bullard, Silvester, Stasinakis, Healy, May, Miles, Williams.
