The men’s and women’s veteran squads have once again proved that age is no barrier to moving boats.

The WRC Men’s C 4x, crewed by Peter King, Andy Hull, Mike Edge and Harry Powell, won overall, retaining the headship for the second consecutive year.

The Men’s G 4-, a Wallingford/Quintin composite, made up of Sean Morris, Colin Cusak and Charles Parry of WRC and Tom Bishop from QBC, also scored a win. Not content with coming first in their own category, they also beat all of the D, E and F crews, adding insult to injury for their competitors by claiming to have had “a bad row.”

Meanwhile the Women’s D 4x continued its winning streak. Alice Brown, Christy Job, Julia Wilkes, Rachel Edge added another gong to an impressive 2014 haul which has already seen them win at the Vet Championships and European Masters.

Well done chaps!

 

 

 

 

Wallingford's lightweight women started the season in the most impressive style this weekend at the British Rowing Senior Championships.

The Lightweight quad of Lou Hart, Lizzie Polgreen, Gemma Hall and Minna Jones-Walters won a silver medal in the women's quad event, among an exceptionally strong field, with the gold medal position going to a composite crew containing Olympic champions Helen Glover and Heather Stanning.

This position also resulted in them winning the pennant for the highest placed lightweight crew, and on top of this they were also the fastest non-composite crew in the event.

WRC's junior boys were also pleased with a 4th place finish in the U19 quad category, and alumni Sarah Fabes won a bronze medal in the W8+ after returning to row with Newcastle University. 

Our veteran squad competed at the 2014 European Masters Regatta, held in Munich in July, and brought home six gold medals. 

The Wallingford women won in the D4- (pictured) and the D2x, and the men won top honours in the E1x and G1x and the F2x and G2x.

 

Wallingford RC members were selected to represent England in four events at this year's Home International Regatta, held in Cork, Ireland. 

The women's quad of Louise Hart, Lizzie Polgreen, Minna Jones-Walters and Amy Grieve took the top honors in this event, beating Wales into second place by clear water.

The lightweight double of Minna Jones-Walters and Amy Grieve were selected after their convincing win at Henley Women's Regatta, and sadly just missed out on the gold medal by a three-second margin to the Scottish combination.

Louise Hart also took second place in the lightweight single scull, and Lizzie Polgreen came in third in the openweight single scull.

 

 

WRC entered eleven crews for this year's British Junior Championships, into events ranging from J15 through to Open. 

Five of these crews qualified for the 'A' finals of their event, and by the close of play on Sunday, Wallingford had claimed two bronze medals.

The J152x of Will Mangion and Max Thompson, coached by Tom Polkey (pictured) took the bronze spot in their event, after just one month together training in this combination. 

The established combination of Katie Metalli and Alice Walker also won a bronze medal in the Girl's Open 2x, which capped a great season for this crew, who have been working together since the start of the year to achieve their end goal of a British Championships medal.
