A fantastic day at Northampton HOR with 12 crews racing and 4 wins for the club. ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ† Good to see lots of our Development Squad in their first races too. The weather was also amazing with sunshine all day and great conditions on the river - slight headwind and not too much stream.

Also up against some experienced scullers from Derwent this crew had some equipment problems so had to stop briefly in the race. When they restarted they finished strongly holding off the eight behind them.

Well done all
