British Rowing Junior Championships

Wallingford sent 19 crews to the British Rowing Junior Championships this weekend, with many of them experiencing Holme Pierrepont for the first time.

There was some fantastic racing, the highlights being Lucy Mead bringing home a silver medal in WJ14 1x in her first ever multi-lane race in a single, and Tabby Gauden and Annie Collins winning bronze in WJ15 2x.

We had plenty of A and B finalists in other events, a fitting end to what has been a very successful season for our juniors.

Pictured are Lucy with her coach Freya Sharp (who also got a medal!) Freya graduated from our junior programme last year; it’s great to see our ex-juniors coming back to help the current squad get as much enjoyment and success from the sport as they did.
