Gloucester Rowing Club is one of the oldest established rowing clubs in Great Britain and is now based on the Sharpness-Gloucester canal where it enjoys one of the longest stretches of unlocked water in the country. It has enjoyed considerable success both at a local and national level over the years and a number of National Squad members started their rowing careers at Gloucester.
A good day at the Schools Head for Hartpury. Their first ever boys eight at the event straight in at the deep end with the big boys, and finishing a respectable 19th out of 36 Champ/1st eights. The last crew that Tom will coach at Glos Hartpury, and technically that’s their best ever Schools Head finish, so well done! The girls quad, coached by Ben, finished a strong 2nd, which is the sixth year on the trot Hartpury have been in the top two in that event. Still early days and there’ll be plenty more to come from both squads as they move into the main regatta season.
