Success for Amy at the Junior Inter-Regional Regatta

Thursday 27th April 2017

On Saturday 22 April, Amy of Queen Anne’s and her crew made the trip up the M1 to Nottingham for the Junior Inter-Regional Regatta and took home gold medals in the year group above. An outstanding achievement! Read Amy’s short write up below.

On Saturday 22 April, my crew and I went up to Nottingham to compete in a national event called the Junior Inter-Regional Regatta (JIRR for short).

We were racing a year group up and were extremely nervous, but we took home gold medals and also won the Cambridge Rose Bowl for the fastest time out of all those who competed. 

We were thrilled with our results as it was the first time we had won in an 8 and we won a year group up! We are looking forward to the National Schools regattas and British Rowing championships to come in the summer term.
