GB crews enjoy success at Holland Beker regatta
The five GB boats at last weekend’s Koninklijke-Holland Beker at the Bosbaan course in Amsterdam, notched up strong results including four wins over the two days of racing
The Men’s double scull of Cedol Dafydd and Jamie Gare won on both days ahead of a Dutch crew on Saturday and the Belgian U23s on Sunday.
GB’s Women’s double of Rebecca Wilde and Kathryn Mole achieved the same results; on Saturday they crossed the line just 0.19 sec behind a squad crew from the Netherlands, before winning on Sunday in the Dutch crew’s absence. The other GB W2x of Perri McCluskey and Jade Lindo were fifth on Saturday and fourth on Sunday.
In the Women’s single sculls, which was raced as a single event across both days and attracted 19 entries, Mathilda Hodgkins Byrne won her heat, then finished second behind 2020 Olympic double sculls bronze medallist Roos De Jong of the Netherlands in her semi, before crossing the line third overall in the final behind Olympic single sculls champion Emma Twigg (NZL), who had won the other semi, and De Jong (NED).
The team were supported by coaches Helen Brown, Dan Harris, Tom Selby and Richard Chambers with Becky Davison as physio.
