On Saturday 22nd April the J14 coxed quad of Eddie Vaughan, Richard Loch, Joe Bryant, Josh Ingham and Conrad Wells (cox) travelled to Nottingham Holme Pierrepont to compete in the junior inter regional regatta having been selected to represent Thames London region on 2nd April.

They took a commanding lead in their heat and qualified for the 'A' final in the fastest time but there were two crews in the other heat that had beaten them at the Oarsport Sculling Head.

The 'A' final with 6 crews turned out to be a race between Guildford and a very good crew from City of Bristol and it was neck and neck right down the course with the J14 boys winning by a canvas.

Our win also contributed to Thames London winning the Victor Ludorum as the most successful region on the day!

Junior Inter Regional Regatta (JIRR) - Saturday 22nd April 2017

Guildford Rowing Club's junior squad have hit a new high this week. The J14 coxed quad, Eddie Vaughan, Richard Loch, Joe Bryant, Josh Ingham and cox, Conrad Wells, took part in the JIRR regional trials at the Millennium Boathouse, Hampton yesterday (2nd April). The boys beat Walton Rowing Club in a timed trial covering 1500m by an impressive 8.5 seconds and have qualified to represent Thames London region at the Junior Inter-Regional Regatta at Nottingham on April 22nd 2017.

This is the first time Guildford has trialled for the region and follows on from our great results at Oarsport Junior Sculling Head.

Oarsport Junior Sculling Head - Friday 24th March 2017

J14 boys win a bronze medal coming 3rd out of 63 crews in their category!

On Friday 24th March three crews from Guildford Rowing Club competed at the Oarsport Junior Sculling Head which is a National event to mark the end of the Heads (time trial) season. The event attracted over 600 crews from all over the country and was held on Dorney Lake which was the 2012 Olympics rowing venue.

The day was nearly perfect for rowing with just a light north easterly breeze and in the afternoon brilliant sunshine. All competing boats had to race the length of the lake 1.8k, turn quickly and race back the other way which was a total of 3.6k. Their total time racing the two lengths (turning was excluded) provided the finish positions.

The J14 coxed quad of Eddie Vaughan, Richard Loch, Joe Bryant, Josh Ingham and Conrad Wells (cox) came 3rd out of the 63 boats competing in their category and won a Bronze Medal.

The J15 coxed quad of Lawrence Turner, James Casemore, Adam Gorecki, Peter Denton and Conrad Wells (cox) came a creditable 24th out of 63 in their category and their position would have been a lot higher had the rudder not broken just before the start. Without a rudder Conrad had to get them to continuously row harder on one side and then the other to try and stay in their lane!

The WJ14 coxed quad of Jessica Bebbington, Keziah Markfort, Emily Shepherd, Abbie Jarvis and Hannah Kingerlee (cox) who were missing their normal stroke were 44th out of 58 in their category which was very creditable as two of them were caught in a major incident on the A3 and had to run down the lake and jump straight in the boat and race, very stressful for all of them!

Weybridge Winter Head - Saturday 21st January 2017

1 win and 4 second places plus some very good overall places.  The seniors had 2 wins.
This was a very good result for the club!
