In the weekly round-up of Thames' summer wins, it was all about the more experienced members of the club at Reading Amateur Regatta and British Masters Championships this weekend.

At a windy Nottingham, Thames took three titles plus a win for Pauline in her composite quad before racing was cancelled due to blustery conditions.

The Thames wins were all in coxed fours. On Saturday, the women's A-C 4+ won by a decisive 10 seconds and on Sunday the same four rowers also won WA 4+. Meanwhile their B-grade clubmates triumphed in their event on Sunday. Pauline's win came in W F/G 4x.

There were a number of other strong performances from the large squad of masters athletes who went to represent Thames at Nottingham; congratulations to everyone.

Over in Reading recent HRR winners Ant and James teamed up to win elite 2-, beating Imperial College by 3/4 length.

Next weekend it's Henley Women's Regatta for the women and Marlow Regatta for the men.
