Another great result this weekend for the Monmmouth Women's Performance Squad over the Mortlake to Putney course. Competing as Women's Masters Age Category D in an eight (WMasD8+), Louise A, Liz L, Sue S, Liz N, Sara P, Anna W, Frances L, Amanda S & cox Gail A travelled to London to compete in the Women's Head of River Race on Sat, & were one of over 300 women's crews racing.
The crew had to deal with some very challenging conditions in the second half of the race with some extremely choppy water from Hammersmith Bridge to the finish. Despite taking on lots of water, they completed the course successfully, finishing 4th in the D age category in a time of 24.25mins and 228th overall.
Many thanks to Gail for coxing, James for towing and Tim for all his coaching advice & race planning on the day.
