W2 racing during Summer VIIIs

After a year of weather interrupting training and cancelling races, our crews were relieved to have a sunny Trinity filled with water time and opportunity to showcase their strength! This year was another excellent Summer VIIIs bumps campaign. W1 successfully held on to 3rd on the river, and M1 bumped up +3 to an exceptional 6th! W2 bumped up +1 overall and are the second highest W2 on the river. M2 went +2 despite it being the first proper term of rowing for half the crew! M3’s amazing effort also moved them up +1, and our beer boat went +2 into the next division. This is not only a reflection of the commitment of our students, but also our amazing coaches who help us be the best crews on the river.

Outside of bumps, crews have travelled across the country to represent us at Bedford Amateur Regatta, BUCS, and Reading Amateur Regatta. Still to look forward to, we have two women’s fours hoping to qualify at Henley Women’s Regatta, and a men’s eight aiming to qualify for Henley Royal Regatta. Perhaps more prestigiously, we will again be sending crews to Llandaff on a pot-hunting venture!

We have also had a bustling social calendar, with Summer VIIIs dinner and Leander Lunch, kindly hosted by Ron Jordan and Richard Powles. Trinity also saw the inaugural Martlet Regatta take place! Despite the rain, it was lovely to welcome back alumni and see some excellent racing. I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who continues to support our club. Whether it’s by cheering us on from the bank, donating, or keeping up with us from around the globe, we really appreciate your help and encouragement. We look forward to another great year ahead!

Thank you as well to our outgoing committee for working around all the obstacles thrown our way this year, and good luck to our incoming committee – hopefully the weather will be kinder next year!
