Young Rowers in the GRR

Junior crews put up some amazing performances at the Great River Race. Here is Exocet, a Bursledon Gig rowed by an under-16 crew from Hamble Sea Scouts, storming through Richmond Bridge to finish 27th in a time of 2hr 51min. They won the under-16 trophy, AND the under-18 trophy and came second in the Scouts category overall. What a great result.
Langstone's own under-18 girls rowed Holly, a Salter skiff, in a time of 3hr 20min, and came fifth in their class - a very good place considering only one of them was over 16 and that by only a week. If they had been in the under-16s they would have come third.
