Success in Long Distance Rowing Marathon

2 Sep 15

Normally rowing regattas are raced over 2km or less, and winter head races up to 5 or 6km.  There are a couple of much tougher challenges, though: The ‘Great Ouse’ covers the 22km between Denver to Ely while the ‘Boston Marathon’ covers the 50km stretch between Lincoln and Boston rowing clubs. Both events took place recently in lovely weather and featured two of our pupils.  Many congratulations to Tristan Hilger whose crew won its division and Olivia Bakewell whose crew beat the previous course record for its division, coming second overall, at the ‘Great Ouse’, and to Tristan again for a strong row at the ‘Boston Marathon’.
