Results from the Met

Sunday, 5th June 2016

We had three crews racing at the Metropolitan Regatta yesterday - one of the premier events in the rowing calendar, held at the Olympic venue at Dorney.

Club captain Mike De Paoli was up first in the IM3 single sculls, giving La Bella Donna her first racing action of the 2015/16 season. Mike was quick out of the blocks and clocked the second fastest time to the 1k mark. He finished in a highly respectable third place, just missing out on a place in the final though. However, we look forward to seeing Mike racing again soon!

The women's squad had two coxed fours in action, both coxed by Sarah Mazza: an IM2 crew of Helen Carswell, Charlotte Burns, Rebecca Hammond and Annette Warton, and an IM3 crew with Helen, Charlotte, Christina Thorp and Lenne Lillepuu.

The IM3 crew had a great row in their heat, finishing in third place in a time of 7:58.6. Alas a few seconds off progression to the final. The IM2s had a straight final, finishing in sixth place in a time of 8:00.

Full results from all races are here.

It is great to see Furnivall crews putting in strong performances at one of the premier regattas. We look forward to seeing more from all crews later in the season, as they build further on this vital racing experience.
