Boston Rowing Club broke new ground at the British Masters Championships in Nottingham on Sunday.

The popular event sees competitors handed handicaps, so all entrants are within age groups.

Adrian Apletree entered the Masters D 1x category, for those aged between 50 and 54.

Adrian had been training hard and hoped for a solid result.

He won his heat well and claimed a solid silver in the final behind a rival from Pengwern RC.

A Boston RC quartet also competed in the Masters D 4+.

In their final they claimed fourth spot.
