The Junior Inter-Regional Regatta is one of the major national event on the British junior rowing calendar and this year it again featured an adaptive race to ick off the proceedings. This year’s weather was the complete opposite of last year’s wind storm (which the adaptive rowers soldiered through, but put paid to much racing during the day), with sunny skies and flat water. A great chance for the adaptive athletes to show their stuff on such a prestigious stage. One of the parents commented in the British Rowing article:

  • “’The alarm clock went off just before 5am, we were so excited to come up and be a part of it,’ said the father of the Marlow silver medalist. ‘No matter what you call it, it’s just inclusivity, feeling like you’re part of the crew. It’s really important to the boys and girls to feel part of the community. Marlow RC do an extraordinary job of it – without the support from the club none of this would happen. A massive thanks also to British Rowing for understanding the power of positivity and of making people feel welcome’.”

Congratulations for the superb performances by the adaptive rowers:

  1. North West – Owen, King’s School Chester
  2. Thames Upriver – Matilda Greenwood, Marlow, Kiki Quibell, Marlow
  3. West Midlands – Isaac Clarkson, Stratford-upon-Avon
