The boys’ VIII, rowed by Lionel Gulich, David Morgan, Mike Border, Jack Wood, George Pearce, Will Broom, Lars Koenig and coxed by Thea, took home a Silver Medal.
The girls’ top IV, with Laura Webb, Georgia Francis, Shannon Webb and Isabel Metcalfe at stroke, had excellent races in the International IV’s event on both Saturday and Sunday, only just losing out in 4th place on Sunday and giving the international crews a “run for their money”.
Shannon Webb and Laura Webb teamed up in the JW18 pairs to record two 3rd places and win a Bronze medal on the Sunday. Georgia Francis and Isabel Metcalfe rowed well in both their pair and singles.
