With so many successes home and away last weekend, this post will just be a long list!
The final results are in from the September regatta, and we had (probably a record) 4 promotions!
Sophie Rooney to Womens B
George U to Boys B
Jessie U to Girls B
Rosa D to Girls C
The sprinters in Sobeka came back looking tired and not a little grubby after a few nights camping without parents! They brought back multiple medals between them, as well as having gained huge experience of racing overseas and having to be self-reliant at regattas. Many thanks to the coaches who gave up their weekend to take them and their boats and kit – and even bring them back again.
Will McC – gold K1 5km and K1 200m and silver K1 500, K2 200 and K4 1000, (with George U).
Jessie U – gold K1 5km and K1 500, silver K1 200 and K2 500
Joe Petersen – gold K2 1000 with Welsh paddler Henry Devonald, silver K1 5km, K4 1000 (with Rob Jefferies, Arthur Urquhart and Henry) and bronze K1 1000.
Rosa D – bronze K1 2km and two silvers and a bronze in crew boats
Dan Golder – silver K1 5km
Sophie Rooney – silver K2 200
Alice Murphy- bronze K1 5km

Elsewhere, the marathon paddlers were opening the 2018/19 Hasler season at Pangbourne, where John-Carlo D had a well-deserved win in Div 7, with promotion to Div 6. Robin Flack was second in Div 3 and promoted (finally) to Div 2.
Isabella M showed great improvement, winning the U12 Lightning race, ahead of Lizzie H, with the girls joining up for a silver medal in the mixed U12 K2.
Chris Hills and Ray Pearce had an overdue return to the podium for 2nd in Div 6 K2.
Malcolm Gilks was also promoted – to Div 7.
Two events again this weekend – with a regional regatta at Fladbury, and the next Hasler race at Henley.
