For the third year in a row Vesta has supplied five brave souls (AKA nutters – and I’m allowed to say that because I’ve done it) to race the longest inland rowing race in the world. Congratulations to Vics McLeod-More, Emily Trant, Verity Ansell, Fran Bennet and Lein Snippe, who completed the course along Lake Geneva in a big, heavy coxed quad. Usually 160km long, the course was shortened due to wet, windy, waves-worse-than-the-Tideway weather, but they still rowed 146km, which took 14 hours, 55 mimnutes and 14 seconds! The ladies have done it again.
A particular mention to Vics, who completed the challenge just a year after having a baby and to Emily for returning for a third year in a row and already planning a fourth. Read her fantastic race report here.
