Vic’s bring home medals from Chester Long Distance Sculls
This year’s Chester Long Distance Sculls was postponed from September (when we hadn’t entered due to towing difficulties) to 25th November. Vics entered 9 crews, ranging from WJ15 to Mens Masters G. Thanks to John Sargent for the loan of his tow car and for Matt Myers for driving.
We had two wins, 3 second places, 2 third places, a fourth and a fifth. Best results from the WJ16 coxless quad (Myers) in Band 2, which beat Grosvenor and Royal Chester by 4 seconds in a time of 22:38. Jane Kelly won the Womens’ Masters B 1x by 12 seconds over a Pengwern sculler in a time of 27:42. There was a close second place for the WJ15 2x (McFarlane), who lost their category to Royal Chester by 16 seconds in a time of 22:48 but beat another Royal Chester double by nearly 3 minutes.
These results show how a wide range of the club members has benefitted from Lesley’s coaching and are performing well at a high level. The focus now is on ensuring that the club has a successful Head of the Float on Saturday 1st December. Please contact Natalie Derry or any club officer to put your name down to help make it a great day.
