Success for Twickenham’s womens squad at Chiswick Regatta

 

The Twickenham women’s first eight overcame tough opposition in the straight IM3 final against Imperial College of Medicine and Thames at Chiswick Amateur Regatta held on Saturday 2nd May.

Twickenham started on the Surrey bank and soon left Thames for behind leaving a tough tussle between themselves and Imperial.

Imperial edged ahead after the start, but the Twickenham crew soon prevailed and went through their opponents in the second half of the race, to win by 3/4 of a length. Half the boat contained girls who were competing in their first regatta.

The women’s squad coach Chris McCarthy commented: "Twickenham RC has good strength in depth in the women’s squad, and winning the Chiswick IM3 pot has set a great precedent for the rest of the season.  I’m very proud of the squad who fought off a competitive Imperial Medics crew; I’m especially proud of the four rowers in the boat who lost their novice status in their first race. Newly recruited novice rowers are pushing for places in the top boat which will make for an interesting and competitive season ahead."
