Loughborough Ladies Win at Huntingdon
Floating Wood Disrupts Stourport Head
To escape the floods at LBC and also for a lovely day out, Erica and Zoe took Therapy on the roof down to the beautiful Huntingdon Rowing Club to row at their head race on the Great Ouse. For the first race the girls raced the double in the WMasB/C/D category. Knowing that they would […]
Flower Power for Thomara while Men Meander at Burton Leander
Both divisions at Stourport Small Boats Head saw wooden objects swept down the river by recent rain and a fast stream, and first division racing was delayed whilst a tree trunk was removed. However, the offending item in the second division had been deliberately launched by members of LBC, as ‘Woody’ made its return to […]
Club Compete for Andy Hill Memorial Trophy
Thomasin and Tara proved they were the pick of the bunch not only by winning a well-deserved first place medal in the J15 Double Scull, but also by being faster than all the J16 Sculls as well. Furthermore, in a subtle escalation of the Henhan headwear fashion stakes they proved that the trendy 1960s look […]
Ouse and Aaahs
LBC headed south last weekend to compete at the Milton Keynes Regatta in a quest to win the Andrew Hill Masters Award. This trophy was generously commissioned by Milton Keynes Rowing Club in memory of Andy, a stalwart member of LBC, who sadly passed away at the Milton Keynes Regatta in 2016. The trophy is […]
Loughborough Noses Ahead
Blistered hands and aching backsides provided the warm glowing feeling that is familiar to all long distance rowers as three Loughborough crews tackled this year’s 21.6 kilometer ‘Great Ouse Marathon’. The now notorious Dr Ferret set off first, with Scott and Mike appropriately attired for a long intergalactic journey, whilst Matannah chased them down remorselessly […]
LBC Packs its Punches!
With several winning margins measured by a couple of feet, Loughborough Boat Club proved that every inch counts as it brought home a fantastic haul of trophies at the Stourport Regatta. Thirteen overall Final wins produced 51 individual pots as the Club showed strength in depth and completed one of its most succesful and enjoyable […]
Loughborough Men Hit Back
With a total of 34 pots collected from 6 boat wins and a turnout of 26 competing crew members, Loughborough Boat Club continued its stunning Summer success at a rainy Bewdley Regatta. A tricky combination of gusty wind against a rising and choppy stream made a change to the recent smooth flat calm conditions, and […]
Inspired by the Ladies’ clean sweep a fortnight earlier, Loughborough Men hit back during a sun-drenched Burton Regatta to bring home medals in both the Open Masters C Quad and the Open Coxless Four categories. Tim, Mike, Walrus and Neil teamed up to form a powerfully diverse combination of age, experience, and good looks, that […]
What, No Corners?
With the sun blazing down on the traditional boating queues, it was a clean sweep at Ironbridge Regatta as every single participating LBC Lady kept their cool and came home with at least one pot, with Nadine and Karen bravely taking the traditional plunge into the river to celebrate their first ever finals win.
In contrast to the more familiar courses set on narrow bendy rivers, Loughborough Boat Club have recently been racing on dead straight, multi-lane venues. Hannah Ferris represented the Club in the National Schools Regatta held on the 2,000 metre 8-lane Olympic course at Eton’s Dorney Lake. Racing against 39 top level opponents entered from schools […]
