Bristol Avon Regatta, Saturday 11th May

After a long and challenging winter season, with many events being cancelled, the Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls Club left school bright and early, heading to Bristol Avon Regatta with an Armada of forty rowers.

The J15’s got the Regatta off to a winning streak in the coxed fours, to be shortly followed by the J18 crew rowing to victory in the Open Women’s Four Category. A win in the J16 four event rounded off a successful and rewarding day for the rowers, coaches and Club.

Winning Crew – Women’s Open Four – Freya, Ailsa, Edie, Eva, Cox – Hattie

Fully supported by the rest of the senior rowers, the J14’s rowing in their first Regatta gained a wealth of racing experience, demonstrating, teamwork, motivation, confidence, enjoyment – and sense of belonging to a successful rowing club.

J14’s racing to the finish line, Lexi, Cleo, Issy Ashley, Cox – Valeria.

 

Winning crews – Freya, Eva, Edie, Ailsa, Scarlett, Ffion, Talaitha, Sasha, Anna B, Anna S and Sienna.

Next weekend, seven Monmouth Girls crews will be competing at the National Schools’ Regatta held on the Olympic course in Eton. Over 5500 competitors will be racing over the weekend – we wish the crews the very best!
