Race Report

In an amazing first for MKRC, our multi-medal winning Women's D 4+ crew of Heidi, Lou, Karen and Paula have broken new ground again, beating 6 other crews to win their category at Vets Fours Head in a time of 23:28. They were also the 3rd fastest women's 4+ overall, beating a lot of younger crews. Special mention to Kelly, who coxed brilliantly in only her second race.

Our other crews included the men's D 4+ of Phil C, Pete, Nick and Steve B, who finished 6/7 in their category in 23:56. They're probably miffed the women beat them, but they had a really consistent row all the way down and given the limited water time they've had since Henley Masters in July they should be very happy with the result.

The women's C 4x couldn't race sadly due to injury, but the women's C 4+ of Jayne, Katharine, Kelly A and Clare did. They finished in 25:39, 4/4 in their category but beating a lot of 4+'s in other categories. Well done again to Lucy for doing a great job coxing on the Thames for the first time.
