STRATFORD-upon-Avon Boat Club’s new Explore Rowing squad stepped up from their usual fun paddles to compete in the Explore Regatta in Bewdley.
Having been paired together in the first race, ‘Rona’s crew’ came through as a close winner against ‘Rosie’s crew’.
In their next two races, Rosie’s crew won one race and very narrowly lost one race, whilst Rona’s crew won both races, finishing top of the table with Bewdley A. In a showdown race, Stratford were pipped by a canvas to a good crew.
Explore Rowing Learn to Row scheme is a British Rowing initiative to introduce rowing to adults: Stratford upon Avon Boat Club still has some places available on its courses starting in September.
