Boston Rowing Club came away from the Nottingham Sprint Regatta with three race victories.

The event is rowed over a short 750m course on the River Trent.

In one of the best races of the day, three juniors girls competed in the WJ13 1X single sculls.

Despite Ruby Latka being beaten in her heat, Jasmine Latka and Lucie Scott won through to make it an all-Boston final.

After a very close race, Lucie took the honours.

Emma Feerick raced in Boston Blue for the first time in a single and gained Boston’s second win in the Womens Novice (WNov 1X).

The third victory of the day came from Harriet Housam in the WJ18 1X single sculls.

Harriet proved to be dominent again in her event, beating Nottingham Rowing Club girls in both the semi and final, with one of the largest win margins of the day.

In the IM3 4+ intermediate coxed fours, Boston’s under 18 boys - Jody McNichol (bow seat), George Proctor (two), Joe Burns (three) and Matt Adams at stroke, with cox Polly Summerfield - missed out in their heat to a Loughborough team.

Polly and Saffy Summerfield took their WJ15 2X double scull into a semi-final against a Nottingham boat, and Jasmine Latka and Lucie Scott doubled up in the WJ13 2X double sculls against Newark.

Despite encouraging efforts from all four girls, their competition proved too strong.
