A Flying Start For The Spitfire!

,
Stourport's brand new racing boat, Spitfire, took off at Evesham Regatta last weekend with a win for the Junior Squad in the WJ14 2x event with Lizzy Davis and Eleanor Jones. The boat was recently named to co-inside with the Royal Air Force centenary celebrations.

Over a successful weekend, Stourport came away with a string of nine wins in total. There were several notable performances, including a strong row in the Open double sculls event, where Sam Fuller and Matt Gould raced to a win against Upton after giving J18 Great Britain national hopefuls from Pangbourne College Boat Club a scare the previous day in a close race.

Former England rower Jane Ryman's successful weekend was secured with her third win in the W.MasD/E.1x event, beating strong opposition from Trentham Boat Club by three lengths.
