HMSGRC Victorious at Pangbourne Junior HeadNovember 16th, 2015
HMSGRC recently raced at Pangbourne Junior Head.
Although racing conditions were atrocious and exceptionally challenging, the full club rose to the physical challenges and produced a set of excellent results. The rowers demonstrated professionalism, unity, commitment, mental toughness and strong leadership from the senior girls. The girls had to cope with a severe headwind, torrential rain along with plenty of mud.
The Junior 14 crew bounced on to the rowing circuit. In their first race they held their nerve over the 2,750m course and secured a well-deserved third place. Special congratulations to the crew as they started rowing in September.
The winning crews were:
Div 1 – Junior 18 coxed fours
Gabby / Pippa / Emily / Eloise / Hannah
Div 2 – Junior 18 coxless pairs
Pippa / Aoife
A great day of racing and team building.
