President leads the way at Stourport
Club President, Jonathon Preece, led the winning ways at Stourport Regatta this weekend. Jon was rowing with the Vet D Crew of Jeremy Picton Turbervill, Peter Kellsal, and Paul Brodholt with Lucy Jones coxing. They raced against a crew from Holland and won convincingly over the 500m course.
Jon then joined up with club mates, Mike Jones and Phil Palmer, with other oarsmen from Ironbridge Rowing Club to win the Veteran eights. Following in Jon’s example the men’s IM3 eight with Club Captain Ian Howell on board, Jeremey Picton Turbervill, Matt Taylor, Paul Brodholt, Joe Bunting, Peter Kellsal, Lenny Colling, Dave Morris with Morgan Baynham Williams coxing overcame a strong Warwick crew and then beat a highly competitive crew from Worcester by just 6 feet in the final.
This men’s performance was capped by Adam Robinson, Lenny Colling, Matt Taylor and Dave Morris also winning in IM3 coxed fours with Morgan coxing again.
The women’s IM3 eight with Ladies Captain Sheron Dean Lucas, Holly Dick, Geraldine Calcraft, Annie Williams, Nikky Wild, Emily Preece, Dawn Evans, Karen Blackwood, beat Stourport in the final of their event.
For the Junior Academy it was another successful weekend. Amy Surman led the way by winning the WJ13 single sculls on both days of the event and also winning J14 2x when she teamed up with Rosie Brandram Jones. Morgan Baynham Williams capped a highly successful day for herself when she teamed up with Ellie Blackwood in J15 double sculls, beating Stourport and then Worcester in the final.
Club President Jonathon Preece commented: "It was tremendous for the club to see so many of the senior crews winning in such tight races. The Juniors as always continue to deliver great results."
