Evesham Rowing Regatta

Two of our Marlborough Pupils won at Evesham Rowing Regatta at the weekend; the competition was against private schools and rowing clubs from the south west of Britain.

Altogether, eight Marlborough pupils took part: Stanley Cannons, Hugo Binnian, Eva Wallace, Helene Rittcher, Jacob Taylor, Rosie (Polly Rose) Taylor, Will Scheel and Phoebe May (Cox).

The pupils who won their events either singly or with their crews were:

Eva Wallace (Cox) won the Wj15 coxed Quads (the quad was also awarded a trophy for this race)

Stanley Cannons J16 coxless Quads

Stanley Cannons j16 single

Each athlete was awarded a ceramic tankard  in the end of regatta ceremonies.

The above pupils will also be taking part in the National School Regatta May 27th-30th at Dorney Lake where they will be competing against clubs and all rowing schools across Britain.

They have been part of The Marlborough School Electives programmes run in conjunction with Hinksey Sculling School, the club which the above pupils are now part of.
