U23 win at the Met Regatta

Fay Sandford (BB ‘11, ‘12, ‘13) was chosen to compete as a member of the GB U23 composite crew racing for the Sun Life Canada Cup (Senior Women’s VIIIs) at The Metropolitan Regatta last Sunday.  The race was a straight final and the crew took an early lead over the rest of the field, pulling out to clear water early on.  They further consolidated their lead to win by a convincing ten second margin.  Selection for the crew followed the April trials and further crew training days. Holly Game (BB ’12, ’13) was unable to race at the weekend due to her exam commitments but is still in contention for final selection later in the Summer, before the U23 World Championships in Linz, Austria, at the end of July.
