Bedford Head results

Hard luck the W.IM2.4+ who narrowly missed a win. many other crews had stories to tell of encounters with the reeds and worries about the many bridges. The results are here http://www.rowstats.com/resultso.php?id=157&f=1&c=BIR

Bedford Head was the first head race of the season for the BRC women (unless you count Boston Marathon, is about 15 head races rolled into one…). At just 2k it felt more like a sprint, and with the many bridges and bends a good racing line was important.

All crews put in good performances, with the women’s coxed fours coming second in both their categories, narrowly missing out on a win by 2 seconds!

The doubles, both of which were fairly scratch, fought it out for 2nd and 3rd positions in their categories too, the final times being:

07:55 WIM1 4+  S Louise Lane, 3 Tasha Scott, 2 Sarah Gregory, B Emma Raynor C Mike O’Connor

07:33 WIM2 4+  S Tasha Scott, 3 Emma Tod, 2 Louise Lane, B Emma Raynor, C Silvia Breu

08:18 WIM3 2x  S Tasha Scott, B Silvia Breu (composite with X-Press BC)

08:31 WIM3 2x  S Sarah Gregory, B Hannah James
