Success for Trafford Rowing Club at National and Local events on Bank holiday weekend.
It was a busy bank holiday weekend for Trafford Rowing Club with their juniors heading to the most prestigious date on the rowing calendar, National Schools Regatta, and the senior crews heading to Northwich for their spring regatta.
Trafford sent 3 crews to the elite National Schools regatta at the London 2012 Olympic Venue, Dorney Lake. To test their skills against the very best in the UK.
The J15 girls quad of Cara, Ellen, Lottie and Eleanor (coxed by Michie) just missed out on their target of the top 12 with an amazing 14th in the country.
A J16 double of Rebekah and Olivia came a very credible 20th (considering Olivia is actually only a J15 this is a brilliant result).
Finally the J16 double of Albert and Myles came 9th following a dramatic day which included equipment failure, a warning for being late and a disqualification for a false start (wrongly attributed to them and rescinded.
Moving to Monday and the senior squad won all three events they entered at Northwich
For such a small club to be able to compete at this level is down to the commitment of the squad members, coaching staff and parents.
Over summer the club will be running rowing courses looking for the next generation of juniors and seniors. If you would like to find out more go to www.traffordrowing.club
