Liz Crighton is awarded Women’s Intermediate 1 single sculls medal

Massive congratulations to Liz Crighton who won W.IM1.1x and the men’s IM1.4- who also won on Saturday 8th June. Both crews came through four rounds, Liz won by more than 3 lengths against Evans of Swansea and the IM1.4- beat old foes Lea RC in a closer race by 3/4l.

There was plenty of action, good side-by-side race practice ahead of Henley, with some close racing and unfortunately a Vesta capsize in the women’s elite pair against Newcastle — ooops girls! Pics below …

The men’s IM1 eight lost to London in the first round, but then in the IM2 beat Nonsuch BC then lost to Shiplake narrowly.

 The novice – now intermediate – men’s eight beat AK easily then lost to Dulwich in IM3.
The Women’s IM2 8 came through two rounds but lost to Thames in their final but just a length and a quarter.
The men’s coxless four lost to London in the Elite 4-, but continued on to beat London then KCS in IM1 event
