Clifton Boat Club races at Avon County Regatta

IMG_1416This weekend the Boat Club raced at the local Avon County Regatta. Archie and Jack led the way, racing in both Junior 18 and then the Senior double sculls event.

Competition was tough, but they managed to put in strong performances in the semi-finals before being beaten by the eventual winners. Louis also at Junior 18 and Senior level showed his high level of skill, impressing many but losing out in the semi-finals.


Arthur and Briden made it an all Clifton final in the Junior 16 sculls event, with Arthur coming out victorious. The Junior 15 quad of George, Hector, Basile and Luke gained more valuable race experience coming up against a strong Wycliffe College crew in the final.

Mia and Ella showed great promise taking to the water in the Junior 16 single sculls event, whilst the Fifth Form crew of Harry, Dougie, Jonny and Theo battled well against Monmouth, but were pipped to the line.

Well done to all who raced and showed that the Boat Club is developing both in strength and depth.
