Three Golds at National Masters

The Walton veteran squad had a good day at the National Masters Regatta held at Nottingham on 13th June, winning three golds and a bronze, with Captain Neil West racing in all the medal crews. Neil and Richard Hosking got the ball rolling winning MC doubles, sculling down Wallingford in the last few strokes. In tough races in the middle of the afternoon the MD quad disappointly missed out on a medal finishing a close fourth, the MD coxless four rowed through for a bronze and the ME coxless four finished a creditable fifth. With most people tripling up fatigue was starting to set in when Neil and Richard together with Mike Everington and Richard Smallman-Smith sculled down Tees in the last few strokes to win MB quads. With just time to swap in Glyn Groom for Mike the crew returned to the start and this time beat Tees by one length to win MC quads. Unfortunately after a generally fine day the weather had deteriorated by the time the IM MD quad raced but a good time was had by all.
