WOW! Great results and VERY wet on Sunday!
J16 2- from the 1st VIII won the Danesfield Cup in great style. The J16 VIII won a well derserved silver, behind a controversial Westminster crew (4th in J16 Champ VIII’s at School’s Head) who should have been in J16 Champ VIII’s?? This was Mr Rendle’s 21st NSR coaching for Pangbourne, and it was delightful to see yet another medal for one of his crews. he will be sadly missed.
The Girls were the highlight, winning a very stylish bronze in Girls Champ VIII’s behind the perennial top dogs LEH and winners Headington, and followed this up with a very delightful bronze in Girls Champ 4- the next day. Pangbourne had only ever won one girl’s medal before, and to win 2 Championship medals in one year was fabulous!
Many thanks to all the parents, who made a real difference with their spirited support from both sides of the lake. Its always nice to the see the Headmaster beaming from ear to ear – whilst trying to be an impartial organiser!
Well rowed Pangbourne!
