ELLIOT AND MORGAN WIN GB-FRANCE MATCH

After their convincing win at the GB trials, our J16 double scull went to the GB-France match full of confidence. Coach Ken Roberts main concern was the possibility of rough water on the Docklands Regatta course affecting their speed. However, race day saw near-perfect conditions and the boys stamped their authority on the race from the start and never looked back, recording a comfortable victory in their first international race. Their victory also helped the GB team win the overall match by 7 races to 6.

This very talented crew completed a rare "triple" this week by adding the British Championship title to their wins at National Schools and GB-France.
