Team WinTech enjoyed a great opening to the 2023 regatta season as hundreds of juniors descended on Holme Pierrepont in Nottingham to compete at the Junior Inter-Regional Regatta. WinTech crews achieved 10 wins alongside a further 17 minor medals across 28 categories.
WinTech boats were particularly prominent in the Women’s Junior 16 Pairs race, coming home first, second and third. Sir William Perkins (WinTech International) ran out winners, representing the Thames Upriver region, ahead of Kings School Worcester (WinTech Medalist) and Nottingham & Union (WinTech International).
A similar pattern emerged in the Women’s Junior 14 Doubles, where all three medaling crews raced in WinTech shells. Cantabrigian took home the gold for the Eastern region (WinTech International) with Great Marlow School (WinTech Competitor) and Nottingham & Union (WinTech Medalist) winning silver and bronze respectively.
Our other wins came in various categories across age groups and boat classes. Kings School Chester raced to gold in the Junior Adaptive Single in a race where silver went to Marlow Rowing Club – they were racing in the WinTech Club Racer and WinTech Explorer 24 respectively. Nottinghamshire County Rowing Association were winners in the Women’s Junior 16 Doubles in a Cobra SE ahead of Sir William Perkins School (WinTech International), in another category where WinTech took home both gold and silver.
Worcester Boat Club won the Women’s Junior 16 Single in a WinTech International whilst the Windsor Boys School (WinTech International) collected yet another victory in the Men’s Junior 15 Coxed Quads, a category they have dominated for years. Great Marlow School took home the Men’s Junior 16 Coxed Fours (WinTech International) and Windsor Boys collected their second gold of the day in the Men’s Junior 16 Quads (WinTech International) in a race where Lea Rowing Club, racing in a WinTech Cobra, took home bronze.
Wallingford Rowing Club (WinTech International) were winners in the Women’s Junior 16 Coxed Fours for the Thames Upriver region whilst our final win on the roster came from Shaklin Sandown (WinTech International) in the Men’s Junior 15 Doubles.
Other medals came in the Men’s Junior 16 Single, where WinTech Internationals collected silver and bronze courtesy of Hereford Cathedral School and Newark Rowing Club. Exeter Rowing Club were silver medalists in the Men’s Junior 14 Single (WinTech International) whilst the City of Bristol came home second in the Women’s Junior 15 Doubles (WinTech International).
We won bronze in the Men’s Junior 16 Pairs via a WinTech Cobra SE raced by Great Marlow School whilst King’s School Chester (WinTech Competitor) finished up third in the Women’s Junior 15 Coxed Fours. Great Marlow School (WinTech International) continued their strong form by finishing second in the Men’s Junior 15 Coxed Fours and City of Bristol collected another medal (bronze) in the Women’s Junior 14 Coxed Quads.
Nottingham Rowing Club were silver medalists in the Women’s Junior 16 Quads (WinTech Cobra) whilst City of Oxford (WinTech International) were second behind Trentham Boat Club in the Men’s Junior 14 Doubles.
