A marvellous weekend of racing for USBC! Over the jubilee weekend (4-5th June) 5 crews headed down to Dorney Lake for two fabulous days of racing kicking of the countdown to Henley.

The afternoon saw the Women’s 4+ (El Stratton (bow), Ellen Green, Ciara Stirrat, Amy Lavelle (stroke) and Ellie Hamilton-Davies (cox)) race. The girls put up an amazing performance placing 2nd in their TT placing them in the A final where they put up a big fight to place second.
Day two was another successful day with crews returning to try and improve on Saturdays performance. Both the Mens 4+ and the Mens 4x put up stellar performances to make A finals where they placed 8th and 5th. The women’s 8+ also stepped up making the B final where they placed 7th.
