Remenham Challenge, 19 December 2015

KRC fielded six 8's at the Remenham Challenge. Overall results:

Men's 1st 8, Intermediate, 5th
Junior Boys, Intermediate, 13th
Men's 2nd 8, Intermediate, 17th
Open Masters Men, 23rd
Masters Women, 32nd
Novice Women, 34th

The senior men's 8's both raced well maintaining good technique and pace. The 1st 8 placed 5th overall and 2nd in Intermediate, 17 seconds off the overall Elite Winners (Thames RC, containing a number of their 2015 winning HRR Thames Cup 8+ and a couple of full internationals on board). The 2nd 8, also racing as intermediate, placed 9th in the division. This was an encouraging overall performance for our young squad

Our junior boys were the only Junior Status crew entered, so they stepped up to race as Intermediate, against other clubs men's crews. They placed 7th out of 13 and had a solid performance in difficult conditions. The young athletes gained valuable experience of Tideway rowing and Captain and Coach Danny O'Dowd was very pleased with their result. 

The women's squad entered two crews and came away with excellent results. The masters crew came 2nd (of 3) and the Novices won (of 8) with some efficient rowing in the rough water.  (pictured below)

Winning crew: R. Kugele (str) / K. Halle / K. Warner / J. Dickman / A. Sims / M. Stalley / L. Long / H. Walmsley (Bow) / R. Brunning (cox)
