Maidenhead Rowing Club entered 16 crews into this National Schools Regatta held at the National Water sports Centre, Nottingham.
This event attracts all the top rowing/sculling schools in the country and it was good to see the Maidenhead crews competing and learning how to be competitive.
The format of the events started with processional races over a 1k course on the Friday and processional races on the Saturday & Sunday over 1,750mtrs. Most of the events were over subscribed so the young Maidenhead crews had to race over the course in a head format and only the first 18 crews qualified for the semi-finals.
Crews then had to finish in the first 2 positions in each of the three semi-finals to qualify for the finals to compete for a medal.
Fridays racing saw the Maidenhead junior crews achieve mixed success resulting in two medal winning crews.
