This weekend saw Maidenhead Juniors take to Nottingham like a bunch of magpies! This year, our medal haul was made up of an impressive 2 GOLDS, 6 SILVERS and 1 BRONZE! We also had 2 crews in finals, and 5 semi-finalists, meaning that EVERYONE who entered this tough event qualified from the time trial. Our results show a massive step up in performance from the 3 silvers that were won last year. For a club with a small group of talented juniors we were thrilled to be placed 7th out of 68 clubs in the medals table.



The past few weeks have seen a string of successful events for the Maidenhead Juniors, internationally, regionally and locally!

On Saturday 24th April, fourteen Maidenhead Rowing Club junior squad members travelled to Nottingham to compete in the Junior Inter Regional Regatta representing the Thames Upriver region against the 11 other British Rowing regions.

The four Maidenhead crews had qualified to represent the region following tough selection trials held at Dorney Lake in March.

The event is run on a points basis with two six-boat heats in each age/boat category racing over 1500m. From the heats, crews qualified either for the 'A' or 'B' finals with 12 points awarded for the winners of the 'A' final all the way down to 1 point for last place in the 'B' final. In addition, medals were awarded for the first three places in the 'A' final.
