As their sponsor, we are proud of Windsor Boys Boat Club’s success over the Bank Holiday weekend! The final weekend of April was an eventful and successful one for Windsor Boys Boat Club. Across three days there were four regattas, with over 80 boys out racing! Races took place at Evesham Regatta, Evesham Sprint Regatta, Wallingford Regatta at Dorney Lake and Marlow Spring Regatta.

Evesham Regatta and Evesham Sprint Regatta are held consecutively. The course used is a very testing one, which is narrow and difficult to tackle. The year 9’s of Windsor Boys Boat Club were out racing at their first ever regatta at both events. This served a great learning curve about regatta racing for them.

At Dorney Lake, the senior boys were training on Saturday for the events ahead of them. In defiance of the high winds on Sunday, the teams race excellently. The doubles sculls event was won by Windsor Boys alongside another victory for the quads event as well! Two wins for the senior boys of the boat club. Congratulations!

During the Bank Holiday Monday, the Marlow Spring Regatta took place. This lead to more triumph for the Club. The J14 quad proudly won the novice quad competition and the J15 and J16 quads also won their events.

A great success for the Boat Club and massive congratulations from the team at Aston Bond!
