Unfortunately due to a clash with half term, Stratford upon Avon Boat Club’s Participation squad was severely depleted in numbers: however, an all-female squad of Annie Silvers, Emma Francioni, Estelle Littleford and Kate Currow arrived at Hartpury College, Gloucester to compete in the last indoor event of the season.
Building on their fine performances at Worcester, a total of three ‘personal bests’ were recorded with Annie bagging a bronze with a fine well-timed race only just missing out on silver, whilst Emma rowed a measured race to get a silver in her race.
Due to a lack of participants, sadly the relays races were scrapped. Said Participation Coach Ralph Johnson, “Considering how little time the squad have to train compared to their competitors, they were rightly pleased with their morning’s work!”
