Fantastic wins at Huntingdon Head
St Neots Rowing Club’s senior crews were successful in four events at Huntingdon Rowing Club’s Head races in windy conditions on Saturday. The men’s masters C crew came in one second behind their opposition, but scored a win once the time handicap had been applied against the younger crew.
The men’s novice coxed four of Tim Neill, Ralf Felsner, Dave Bygraves, Matt Womack (pictured) and Libby Milne as cox, soundly beat their opposition by four minutes in their first head race win since coming together as a novice crew.
John Knights beat his opposition by some two minutes in the Masters F/G singles event and the men’s coxed eight beat Star Club to clock the fastest time of the day for the second year running, and this was despite a handshake with the bank during the race. The mixed IM3 quad recorded the sixth fastest time of the day, winning their event and with a substitute due to illness. The women’s coxed 4 came second in their event.
Club Captain Ali Young said:
The club has started the head racing season very well, for both junior and senior squads and this will enable all rowers to build up their winter training over the coming months.”
