Crowds watching the racing

Vesta’s Senior and Intermediate crews raced at Wallingford regatta this weekend in the first of many multi-lane races this summer. Conditions were less than ideal, with a strong tailwind and white horses. Congratulations to the senior women who put down a marker for the summer by winning both Intermediate 2 and Intermediate 3 eights and gaining some swanky hip flasks instead of the traditional open-top silverware. A great result!
