Lots of fun was had by all at the annual Remenham Challenge head race yesterday. Hosted by Vesta, it was good to see a solid 44 entries, with all seven Remenham clubs sending a strong contingent of crews. It was especially good to see 10 novice crews entered in what was for many their first racing experience. The Vesta novice men have shown some real dedication recently and were unlucky to come up against some more experienced crews. Vesta’s senior women were 3rd and 5th in a strong Elite Women’s category won by Thames. The senior men achieved some positive results in Men’s Intermediate, the busiest category, with the first two ‘matched’ crews finishing 2nd and 3rd in the category and 5th and 7th overall. It must be said that Thames had a day to remember, taking the spoils in 5 out of the seven categories. It was quite a pill to swallow to hear such hearty Thames cheers within our own clubhouse and has certainly given Vesta’s athletes the motivation to ensure they come out on top next time.
