Metropolitan Regatta 2014

The Met was always going to be a step up from Wallingford in terms of competition with the universities present and this was indeed the case. The squad managed one victory in Men’s Senior 8’s, continuing their success after winning the Championship 8 at Wallingford, otherwise the weekend was mostly a string of placing’s in the finals with a huge number of 2nd places!

The next step is to convert the second places into wins when it counts! Reading regatta this weekends, and then Men’s crews will be racing at Marlow, and Women’s crews will be in action at Henley Women’s.
