As some of you may know, the Junior World Rowing Championships have started just down the road from the club at the Dorney Rowing Lake. This year two of our members have done well enough to be selected to represent the Great Britain team and have reached their respective A/B semi-finals; they are Jack Beaumont, who was selected to row in Quadruple Sculls, and Tom Jost who was selected to coach the Junior Mens Double Sculls.
A provisional draw for the event is available here - Draw
All race times are subject to change but both boats with a Maidenhead interest raced a Heat on Thursday, a Repachage or Quarter Final on Friday, a Semi Final on Saturday, before racing in a Final on Sunday.
Both crews with a Maidenhead RC interest have managed to get through to their respective A/B semi finals. The JM4x containing our very own Jack Beaumont managed to win their heat on Wednesday against some tough competition including a very good German crew. That result got them straight into Saturday's A/B semi where the top three go through to the A final on Sunday.
If you are thinking of heading down entry is free unless you want to go into the enclosure in which case tickets cost £15 and car parking is £10, which is a small price to pay to see our club members represent GB at such a high level.
