Sudbury Rowing Club’s junior squad enjoyed another successful weekend competing at the Peterborough regatta.

Racing in the single scull category, Nick Scott easily won his heat before going on to comfortably claim Sudbury’s first victory of the day.

It proved a day of mixed fortunes for Tom Bowles, who narrowly missed out winning his single scull event, losing in the final, but he recovered to clinch a close-fought victory in the IM1 category, beating an Peterborough opponent in the two-boat final.

The WJ15 quad of Emma Rogers, Natasha Treagust, Lucy Edwards, Amelia Moule and Sophie Masetti had to wait all day for their race which was a four-boat final.

However, they proved it was worth the wait as they pulled away from their opposition and maintained a convincing lead right to the finish.

Amelia Moule achieved a third place heat finish in the WJ14 single scull, as did Lucy Edwards in the WJ15 single scull event, while Natasha Treagust and Emma Rogers narrowly missed out on a place in the WJ15 double sculls event, finishing second in the repechage.

The Men’s Masters D Eight had to settle for a second-placed finish behind York, while there were also good performances from Nick Scott and Julia van Zyl (double scull), Tracey Muir and Tricia McGrillen (W Masters E double scull), Alan Muir and Sean Moriarty (MastersB novice double sculls) and David Wasse and Jeremy Milbank (Masters F/G double scull).
