Henley Royal Regatta 2017 is less than 24 hours away, where does the year go!
This year BMSBC will be represented by the senior girls, competing in the Diamond Jubilee Challenge Cup. This is a fantastic achievement to even be in the regatta; in an event where there are only 16 places available. Our quad had worked and raced hard throughout the season so that they were not required to attend the qualifying races, a nice feather in their caps!
The quad will face Beckett B on Thursday, a crew made up of some talented sweep rowers and certainly not to be under estimated.
BMS will have the usual drinks and nibbles available in Butlers Field on Wednesday lunchtime. Please do come along and chat all things rowing and BMS.
Unfortunately the boys side of the boat club had a tough day at qualifiers. The Fawley quad missing out by just over 1 second in some very unfavourable conditions. The second boat, a PE eight, missed out by just under 1 second. A good result for the young crew but still disappointing for the boys.
We were so close to having three crews in the event, but ended up wth one. A testament to the efforts being put in across the boat club, but margins matter in sport and unfortunately we were just the wrong side of them last Friday night. Your time will come!
I hope everyone enjoys the regatta and I would like to thank you for your on going support of BMSBC.
