The Nottingham Rowing Club Masters G coxed four of Dave Wregg, Tony Lorrimer, Steve Cuthbert, Peter Stasiuk and cox Claire McCready are celebrating after they won the Masters E/F/G coxed fours event over the 450-metre sprint course.
Their first-round opponents were from their old rivals Stourport. The crew had a handicap start because of the age difference, which they made full use of and had actually increased it after the first minute.
They then cruised to the line allowing Stourport to close the gap but it was a comfortable win by one length.
The final saw them up against an even younger crew from Hereford who were the winners from the Saturday regatta.
However, the race followed the same pattern as the previous race with the Nottingham crew crossing the line still two lengths ahead.
The crew enjoyed the day’s racing back on the river, reminding them of river regattas from 40 years ago.
Meanwhile, the club’s senior section went to the Olympic rowing course at Dorney to take part in Wallingford Regatta – one of the UK’s larger club regattas.
The women’s coxed four of Madeleine Davy, Chantelle Johnson, Charlotte Bainbridge, Natasha Johnson and cox Sophie Jones won Club Fours after a close race with Llandaff in the final.
The women’s quadruple scullers came a close second to Thames and the crew then split in to two double sculls that came second in both the challenge and club events.
The challenge double scull were narrowly beaten to the line by Katie Greves – an Olympic silver medallist in 2016 – and her junior international partner.
The men’s challenge coxless four missed out on the final by 0.6 of a second after coming third in their semi-final. The squad now travels to Ghent Regatta to test themselves at international level.
