WINS AT PAIRS HEAD AND SILVER SCULLS

Walton had two wins at the Pairs Head, with Harry Lonergan and Elliot Tarrant beating their club-mates Callum Gathercole and Oli Knight by 1 sec to record a stunning one-two in J16 doubles, twenty seconds ahead of the rest of the field. Chris Leonard and James Brown had a storming row to win masters pairs and come third fastest pair overall! Holly Jones and Annie Withers also had a fantastic row to come second in Womens Junior pairs.

Sam Knight and Sam Wilson were our fastest boat, coming tenth overall, out of nearly 500 crews, and just missing their class win by less than a second!

The Silver Sculls on home water saw a huge contingent from Walton take up the challenge. They were rewarded with 10 wins. The older girls group dominated with Holly Jones and Sam Ball being the fastest womens double overall, and winning WJ17, with Sam also winning her single. Annie Withers repeated that feat in WJ18 singles, and taking the doubles title with Julia Clarke. Josh Wedlake was another double winner, taking IM2 singles and doubles with Neil West, who also took the Masters doubles title with Glyn Groom. Oli Knight won J15 singles, coming 11th overall and Dave Clarke won Masters E.

Callum Gathercole and Elliot Tarrant continued their form from the Pairs Head, and despite starting at the back of the entire field, managed to weave their way through to set the 5th fastest time of the day and win J16. Special mention should go to the members of the boys and girls beginners groups, many of whom were racing for the first time. Particularly impressive were Megan Houska and Tilly Catlin in girls J13 doubles who were only ten seconds off winning their class, in their first race together.
