Boston RC is frequently one of the biggest clubs in attendance and this year was no exception.

As a result of this large entry, a tasty haul of silverware was brought home.

The Latka twins, Ruby and Jasmine (pictured), have moved into the WJ14 2x section and they duly cleared up, while fellow twins Polly and Saffy Summerfield made it two wins from two events.

Dingo Summerfield (pictured) and Jacques Gavey destroyed the J15 2x field and had some older crews looking scared.

In the adult events, Rob Parker, fresh from him new Boston Marathon Record, won the masters 1x before success in the masters 4.

Boston head coach Adam Berry teamed up with Lincoln captain Will Summerlin in the im2 2-, and they eased past three other crews to win.

The fastest Boston boat of the day was a 4x+ of Lucie Scott, Dingo Summerfield, Oliver Tunnard and Jacques Gavey.

The under 15s were bumped up to adult level, but were the overall sixth fastest finishers at Brigg.

The event also saw a group of under nines from the Carlton Road Boathouse enter their first-ever races.

Boston will now prepare for the Burton Head on October 25.

Meanwhile, Emma Feerick is preparing to compete at the British Senior Championships.

She will row alongside some of the Great Britain Olympic Squad on October 25.
