Wallingford Rowing Club sent a contingent again this year to Abingdon’s Spring Head and had successes in both the junior and masters category. Seb Newman raced well and went onto win the junior 14 singles category. Wallingford’s junior women put in a strong performance with Freya Dale and Alice Walker taking first place in the women’s junior 17 doubles category. Freya then went on to also win women’s junior 18 singles category and take the trophy for fastest female junior sculler of the day. The veterans also put in strong performances taking home two wins in the masters E/F/G eights and Rachel Edge and Nikki Absolom winning the women’s masters B/C double sculls. 

 

Wallingford member Kathryn Twyman had a successful weekend at the first World Cup of the 2013 international season which took place in Sydney, Australia. Racing in the top lightweight women's boat, the LW2x, Kathryn and partner Imogen Walsh rowed a strong second kilometre to break through from 4th and take the Bronze medal by a comfortable margin.

Wallingford junior coach Chris Boddy also had a successful weekend winning a silver medal in the LM4- by a clear margin in what is usually a close field.

Katie Greves, who is an honorary life member of Wallingford, raced in the women's pair and women's eight taking fifth place in the pair, and narrowly missing a bronze in the eight by less than a second.

 

After a number of head races being cancelled due to the weather, Wallingford's junior squad finally had chance to race last weekend at the Gloucester Spring Head - and it was worth the wait with the juniors winning three categories. It was bitterly cold and windy but all crews raced well and the junior 16 men’s coxless quad took an impressive win with Dan Wilkinson, Tom Brock, Seb Newman and David Willcox racing to victory. It was a special occasion for David as the results marked his first win. Dan and Tom then went onto also win the junior 16 coxless double category. The final win of the day came from Lucy Walker who won the women’s junior 15 single sculls.

Wallingford’s senior women had an incredibly successful weekend at Women’s Head of the River Race, taking home the pennant for women’s intermediate 1 eights and finishing 10th overall. The women took on the iconic course and with over 300 crews racing the four and a quarter mile course, finishing at Putney Pier, competition was plentiful.

Oarsport Junior Sculling Head took place at the weekend and Wallingford Rowing Club’s junior crews put in a promising performance. Held at Dorney Lake the head is a prestigious event for only quads and octuples. Wallingford entered one boy’s junior 15 crew and two girls’ junior 14 quads - the second girls’ quad having only just started rowing this season. All crews raced extremely well and all came in the top half of their categories.
