British Rowing Master Championships 12th June 2021

A small squad of intrepid Masters Bewlers got to grips with the Covid rules and raced in the Master Championship's at Holme Pierrepont. In the Op MasF 2x a scratch crew of Rob and Dr Neil, going for “the experience and to wave the flag” but can be pleased with their splits for the 2nd 500m in which they were on the pace.


In a combined event Op Mas D/E 4- (Mike/Crawford/Lucian/James) had a good win in 3.52.10 (which included the 7s head start given to one of the crews) with 1.1sec margin over Greenbank in 2nd and Eton Excelsior 3rd.


Bewl secured a second Gold in the Op Mas D 4x (Hagen/Ben/Rod/Angus) with the Bewl Quad winning comfortably with a 10+ second margin over Doncaster and Kingston RC.


Our WMas B/C 2x (Lou/Mika) were the only crew to have a heat or eliminator which they won well in 4.17.60. In the final, despite reducing their time by 7 seconds to 4.10.50 they came second to Mortlake AA with Cantabrigian in 3rd in 4.15.30.


After seeing Bewl bring home two golds earlier in the day (quad and coxless four), Sarah and Jonathan raced in the final of the mixed masters F/G doubles. The oldest crew (Birmingham) started first with a 10 second handicap. Bewl caught them with 250m to go, leading to an exciting few hundred meters, but managed to finish with a 3 second lead, to win in a time of 4.17 (with Derwent finishing 3rd).


A great showing from our Masters Squad with three Golds and a Silver from the 5 events – well done all.

Peterborough Spring Regatta 2021


A small squad of BBRC Juniors entered this stripped back Covid safe regatta and our first Regatta after the Covid lockdowns.


On a very hot day,  the J18 4x of Ollie, Theo, Max and Matt came off an excellent start with some assured steering from Matt to hold second in their final (3.14.4) to York City (3.07.0) and beat crews from Star Club and King Rochester.


In the WJ18 4x (Susi, Ottilie, Milly, Phoebe) BBRC were in contention with the leaders up to 700m ultimately coming third in their final behind York City and Hartpury in 3.46.3 and a first regatta race for Milly.


In the WJ16 2x, Sophie and Biba won their heat in 3.52.9 and went on to win their final beating Peterborough City A and B and Gloucester RC in a time of 3.46.6. In their Singles, Sophie was eliminated in the heat (4.30.7) and Biba won her heat (4.07.6) and went on to come third in a closely fought final (4.04.1). Well done to both girls with their busy return to racing and a win in WJ16 2x.


It was great to see BBRC Juniors back racing in a regatta after the prolonged Covid absence of events and gives a good marker for building on for further Summer racing.
