A relatively small number of athletes from Bedford Modern raced at Northampton head of the river on Saturday and despite the bitterly cold weather, it proved a highly successful day for the boat club.
We managed to collect three wins, the J15 boys A crew, the girls J15 4x+ and Imogen Eales and Jess Read in the J15 2x. An impressive result for the boys eight, who were actually racing in a Mens Intermediate category, and also managed to post the fastest time recorded of the day, taking the win by just 0.8 seconds! A strong performance by these boys; Sam Szeto, Matt Fox, Arjun Patel, Aaron Smith, Caleb Avis, Tim Evans, Ethan Carr, Ed Harris and Jake Young, well done to them.
The girl’s quad also managing to win their event by a narrow margin, this time to our second boat in the event. The winning crew was Imogen Eales, Hannah Heappey, Lauren Burchell and Molly Kemble coxed by Anja Wharton.
Jess Read and Imogen Eales then teamed up for their double in the afternoon managing to dominate the event and collect the final win for the boat club.
All athletes raced well on the day, despite the tricky conditions, and another collection of pots for the boat club. Well done to all.
