Olympic course for juniors

Olympic course for juniors

4th June 2017

We would normally ask the juniors to write up reports from their races themselves, but they're getting a by during the exam season! They did find time to achieve some great results in two weekends of regattas...

National Schools Championship (NATs), 27 May:
Six of the club's juniors faced very early starts to get to the National School's Regatta at Eton Dorney on 27 May. The J16 girls quad was up first and faced fierce competition in the qualifier race followed by the boys in a J18 double. Lucy, Holly, Ellie, Jess, Jamie and Ollie can all be very proud of how they rowed and represented Deben amongst competition at the highest level. Experience gained, T-shirts bought, photos under the rings and a great day watching some Olympians of the future!

Peterborough Spring Regatta, 3-4 June:
The sun shone again for a great weekend at Peterborough Spring Regatta. Many seniors and juniors competed hard and everyone rowed really well. A special mention to Holly and Phoebe who came away with 'pots' but also to Katie who successfully competed in her first competition and came out smiling. With singles and doubles aplenty, there were many personal bests and exciting finishes for the very loud Deben supporters to cheer on. Some really good teamwork all round as everyone helped get boats on and off the water...with Jamie at one point having to leap out of his double and run round to leap into a single for his next race! Congratulations to all the rowers and support team!
