2017 for Barnes Bridge Ladies comes almost to a close this weekend, with the last water session on Saturday, and a chance to burn off that second helping of roast potatoes with some cross training next week.
We’ve had a great start to the head season so far, with Quintin and Hammersmith to look forwards to in the new year; onwards!
Pairs Head – A great turnout for The Bridge with 6 crews racing and two pennants in the bag for our W. Masters E paid and W. Masters F/G double.
Vets 4s Head saw another 6 boats taking to the water, with quads racing in masters categories B,D & F, coxed fours in categories B & C, and a coxless 4 in E. Again pennants were won, namely for the two composites; the MAA/BBL composite WE4- and the BBL/KRC/Loch Lomand/DUR WF4x.
Fours Head was a tad quieter with only one quad entered due to the late removal of the minimum points requirement.
Sculler’s Head was a success for our super sculler Katy B who came 3rd out of 12 in her category.
Last of the season, Walton Small Boats Head added one more to the tally with a win for the composite MasF/G 2x.
Not bad at all!
The year’s successes were celebrated at the Christmas Party on the 9th with great food, drinks and dancing.
