Worcester’s WA were up against Trinity’s WB boat for their first race today. As expected, these girls delivered just like they did yesterday. A slow and tricky start had Trinity in the lead but our women were having none of it and with a surge in power they regained the distance and over-took trinity to the delight of the Worcester crowd on BH island. They maintained a lead overlap with a very determined Trinity but these girls know what they’re doing and a final power burst saw them cross the finish line with a win. This win had WA qualify for the next race only an hour later, as the last Worcester boat on the river these girls had a point to prove and after some re-fueling and length stretching these girls got back into the boat to face the dreaded Wolfson WA boat, who had already beaten our WB crew. The start of the race had both crews neck and neck, but unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be and WA did cross the finishing line second and thus ending our Christ Church regatta campaign. Worcester’s WA have lead a valiant campaign during this regatta, you’ve done us proud ladies!
