Third place victory for St Neots Rowing Club's Juniors!
St Neots Rowing Club sent two representatives to the 2014 British Rowing Senior Championships, which took place in blustery conditions on October 19th at the National Water Sports Centre, Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham.
The British Rowing Senior Championships is open to all clubs affiliated to any Great Britain Rowing Body and to any individual member of an affiliated club who is eligible to be part of the Great Britain Rowing Team.
Hot off their win at the Pairs Head event in London last weekend, the dynamic duo of seventeen year olds, Josh Davies and Fergus Mitchell took part in the under 19 year old category for men’s double scull which saw them racing against some of the top crews in the country, including members of the Great Britain National Squad.
A representative of St Neots Rowing Clup who was on hand spectating at the event said, “In extremely difficult head wind conditions, and racing up a year Josh and Fergus put in a solid performance to achieve a respectable 3rd place. The racing format meant that all doubles from across the country no matter their age were put into the same draw. This also meant that they were unable to race both crews who finished above them despite beating them on time in their respective finals".
