2013 British Masters Championship Silver Medallists
On 19th May the womens squad attended the British Masters Championship at Nottingham. This was the first time I and most of the squad have been. We went for the experience and to compete at a higher level.

Help us get to Henley - Boat Challenge
Established in 1884, Liverpool Victoria Rowing Club has seen many changes but the dreams of our younger members are, this year, focused firmly on competing against the best in the world at the Henley Royal Regatta and Henley Women's Regatta.
As you can imagine, this would be an achievement of a lifetime for our teams and a fitting testament to the hard work and training effort that they deliver each week on behalf of our club.
The Junior Captain, Connor Mumford, summed up the feelings within the crews by saying, "Henley's not like other regattas. Just to qualify to enter will be an incredible achievement. It's been a long time since the Vics were able to take a crew there so it's going to be a very proud moment to represent Liverpool Victoria and the Wirral." .
The legacy of this summer's Olympics is alive and well at Liverpool Victoria Rowing Club - clearly demonstrating to the young sportsmen and women that commitment, belief and sheer determination gets results. Participating at this level does not come easily and we could not be more proud of the teamwork showed by each and every one of our junior members. However, getting to Henley requires both a community and team effort - and we are asking for your help to get us there.
"Recent results in winter competitions show that many of our individuals are rapidly progressing towards the performances they will need to excel. Their task is to hold onto their dreams when the pressure of all this summer's activities unfolds. Liverpool Victoria RC is looking forward with excitement to the prospect of seeing its junior crews competing at the top level this summer." - Matthew Hackett, Junior Coach.
Why do we need your help?
