Well done everyone who competed at Gloucester today… some racing 1750m and some 5000m and some potential course records.
Jack, Seb and Robbie did well in their almost J18 4x-.
Georgia won WIM3 4+ with the senior ladies in the morning division and raced with Hannah in the WIm 3 8+ in the afternoon.
Hannah and Kate raced with the ladies Nov 8+ Div 1 and Tom and Danielle took on coxing duties for the seniors.
We also had great performances from the girls coxless quad of Evie, Rebecca, Molly and Bree (won J18 4x- comfortably), Jaz & Abbie won WJ15 2x, Emily WJ15 1 x and W Nov 1x, Ed J14 1 x, Kate & Abbie came second in WNov 2x.
Matt and the girls 4+ of Evie, Rebecca, Molly, Bree and Cox Frankie raced for time only as there were no other entries in their categories with good times for both crews.
Great to see that all that hardwork in the ergo room (and the extra that they do at home) pays off – good technique and fitness combined gives good results.
Many thanks to Team KP for all their help this week and to the junior Team KP members who helped considerably with trailer duties. Thanks also to Team Parents and to Stu for taking on the towing duties.
