Rowing: Weybridge Winter Head
|By Heather Dunmall (Year 13) and Lucy Hubbard (Year 13)|
On Saturday 21st January the Berkhamsted Rowing squad competed in the Weybridge Winter Head.
The 3000m course along the River Thames was packed with many crews despite the freezing temperatures.
Rob Smith and Joe Markby competed in the men’s J18 category. They competed well being placed 6th overall with a time of 13.12. Given that this was their first outdoor competition this is a very impressive result.
Heather Dunmall and Lucy Hubbard competed in the women’s J18 category which was closely contested between 9 very strong crews. Over the course of the race they managed to overtake two crews and remained ahead of all who started behind them. They finished with a raw time of 12.23 and an adjusted time of 12.28 due to a time penalty putting them in fifth place overall.
