Winning Ways for Catherine and Gemma

Gemma and Catherine King were part of the Senior England at the Home International Regatta in Strathclyde Park last weekend.

There were a number of fantastic performances across the team, resulting in a win for the England Junior Women.  Gemma came back to us with her review of the weekend,

‘We thoroughly enjoyed the experience of representing England at the Home International Regatta and were delighted to come away with a win in the lightweight pairs event! We also raced in the women’s eight, where we faced tough opposition. It was a very exciting race with only a few seconds separating all of the crews, with England coming through the line in 3rd place.  Our results alongside other performances helped England to secure second place out of the Women’s Senior Teams, narrowly losing out to a strong Scottish team.’

All teams were made to feel incredibly welcome but the weather was a challenge!

‘Despite pouring rain throughout the day (typical Scottish weather!), we enjoyed a great day of racing. It provided a fantastic end to the season.’
