Stratford upon Avon Boat Club enjoyed a great day’s racing at the annual City of Oxford summer regatta held on Saturday 15 August. The Women’s Junior 15 Quadruple sculls crew were victorious winning comfortably by three lengths against a crew from City of Cambridge. The Stratford crew members are Claire Teakle (stroke), Olivia Hansen, Isabella Rosso, Sofia Ward (bow) and Emily Brooks (cox).
Stratford crews also made the finals in several other events including Women’s Novice double sculls Catherine Simpson and Danielle Raymond competing at their first regatta; Junior Boys Conrad Bird & Isaac Herring and Junior Girls Isabella Rosso & Claire Teakle J15 sculls.
Said coach Mark Holden, “All Stratford’s crews enjoyed some competitive racing over 1 km on the Isis, a picturesque stretch of the River Thames. The Club is now looking forward to this weekend’s local regatta at neighbouring Warwick Boat Club and a final regatta of the season at Ross on Wye on 29/30 August to close what has been a very successful season for the Club.”
