For many of the junior squad, the National School's Regatta was their first experience of a national multi-lane event, but all Wallingford crews displayed some high-quality racing across age groups and events.

The J164x of Henry Edwards, David Willcox, Alex Lyons and Tim Waller (pictured) stole the show, winning silver in a notoriously well-contested event.

Congratualtions are also due to the Girl's Championship 2x of Alice Walker and Katie Metalli, who just missed out on a medal with a 4th place finish in their final. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The annual British Rowing Masters Championships was held at Holme Pierrepoint, Nottingham, and a large contingent of Wallingford’s masters squad entered. Peter King and Mike Edge brought home a gold medal by a convincing margin in the MD2x, and both then raced in their single sculls - Pete took silver in the MC1x, and Mike a bronze in the MF1x.

The women’s D4x crew of Christy Job, Rachel Edge, Alice Brown and Julia Wilkes also won their event (pictured), and Rachel Edge (with her partner from Wycliffe RC) added to the medal tally with a silver medal in the WD2x.

 

 

 

 

 

Wallingford juniors Lucy Walker and Dan Wilkinson travelled up to Nottingham City Regatta to gain some valuable multi-lane race experience. Their efforts were justly rewarded, with 16 year-old Lucy winning the WJ17 single scull, and Dan taking 3rd place in the J17 single scull.

 


Sunday 4th May saw Wallingford Rowing Club host their annual regatta at Dorney Lake. As usual, the event was extremely popular, attracting entries from clubs all over the country. There were 117 races held, and events were offered in a wide range of age categories and boat types.
Wallingford’s WLwt2x of Amy Grieve and Minna Jones-Walters (pictured) won their event by a convincing margin of 17 seconds, in what was a newly-introduced event for this year’s regatta.  

Wallingford’s junior squad was well-represented at the regatta and notched up some good results throughout the day. The J164x- finished 2nd by 0.3 second in a highly competitive field with just 5 seconds separating all crews. The WJ182x of Alice Walker and Katie Metalli achieved a third place finish in their event, and the WJ154x+ also finished third out of a strong field of 18 crews.

 

Wallingford Rowing Club is pleased to announce a new partnership with Co-operative Funeralcare, who have recently opened new premises in the centre of Wallingford. The Co-operative are very interested in helping clubs and groups in the local community, and have made a very generous donation towards the redevelopment of Wallingford Rowing Club buildings. The funding is to be used to create a 'Club Room' within our existing building, which will provide club members with a comfortable place to meet, relax, and of course re-fuel and warm up between training sessions on the river.
 
The Co-operative Funeralcare are also the title sponsors of the Junior 15 eights event at Wallingford Regatta, which is happening on Sunday 4th May at Dorney Lake. We are very excited about the future of the partnership and the development of our new facility, and our members are very appreciative of the generosity of those involved. Pictured to the right are Club Captain Caroline Greves, with Derek Wright from the Co-operative Funeralcare, and Vice-Captain Eve Newton.
