Race Report

Milton Keynes Rowers, Helen Marshall and Jenny Mingaye were the only crews representing MKRC at the 2019 British Rowing National Masters Championships held at Strathclyde Country Park, Glasgow.

Braving almost sea-like conditions, the phenomenal double race a straight final with an amazing start keeping their strong contenders at bay, with just 2 seconds behind the leaders to bring home the silver. Most of the opposition had previous beaten this double this season, so Helen and Jenny trained hard to ensure a medal place at the Nationals.

In her single event, Helen Marshall had to have a rolling start as the wind was too strong to hold the boats onto the stake boats and took silver, beating 4 other strong scullers, losing only to a commonwealth international.
