Boston Rowing Club continued their great record at the Peterborough Summer Regatta, returing with a series of victories.

Saturday’s action was raced over 1,000m where the WIM3 4+ - who had never even trained together - cruised to victory.

The WJ15 4x+ were also a new crew and they had to dig very deep to record an excellent victory, much to their delight.

The WJ14 2x of Ruby and Jasmine Latka had a game plan, executed it to perfection and went home with even more silverware.

Bunty Blanshard, competing in the WJ14 1x, had a very long day with nearly seven hours between her races, but she managed to keep focus and claim victory.

The J15 2x of Jacques Gavey and Oliver Tunnard had a mechanical glitch in their final which pushed them to third.

The WIM3 2- also encountered some technical difficulties after a crash in their final caused their opposition to be disqualified and a re-start ordered.

Nicole Hendy finished third in the WIM3 1x.

Sunday’s racing was over the 500m distance.

The WJ15 4x+ made it two wins from two, although the 0.6 second winning margin was perhaps a little close for comfort.

The Masters D 4+ claimed victory by 0.4 seconds while the Latka twins and Bunty also earned their second victories of the weekend.

The WJ15 2x of Lucie Scott and Sam Watson missed out on a final place in the repechage.

The J15 2x final saw Jacques and Oliver take third in a furiously-paced final.

Boston’s Emma Feerick finished second in the Masters Rowing Mas A 1x and there was a fourth place for Jason Scott and Jeff Elms in the Mas C 2x.
