Fantastic results for Bewl at The Veterans Fours Head 2019


Bewl had a fantastic day at the Veterans Fours Head which took place on Sunday 24th November attracting a total of 212 quads & fours racing on the flood tide over a distance of about 6000m,  from the Mile Post to 650m above Chiswick Bridge.  Weather conditions were excellent with a SE wind of 3 mph and a comfortable temperature of 10 degrees. Three Bewl quads took part with great results all round.

The quad of Hagen, Ben, Rod and Angus retained their MasD4x title from last year and were also the 5th fastest boat overall after a storming row.  In MasE4x, Sarah, Jonathan, Mark and Mike came 4th in their event (that's right, in the men's event but with a partially mixed crew - an excellent performance!) in a big field of 16.  Annie, Richard, Ro and Chris (from TSS) had a great row to come 2nd in MxMasE4x, their best result in the event so far. 

All in all, a great day for BBRC!
