International Selection

Three TSS members have been selected to the Great Britain Rowing Team for regattas in May.

Alan Campbell claimed his ninth win in the single at GB final trials back in March, and the following month was named as the single sculler at the European Championships, to be held in Brandenburg on 6-8 May. 

Also racing in Germany will be juniors Meg and Marcus, who have been selected for the International Junior Regatta held at Munich over the same weekend. Marcus is in the sweep group, while Meg is one of six women scullers. 

Adam Lodygowski, from the Senior Men's group, represented Poland at the first World Cup of the season, held in Varese in April. Racing in the lightweight four, his crew finished ninth overall.

Wallingford

The TSS Juniors sent a small but select group to Wallingford after the mass participation at Chiswick the day before. An 8.30 start meant leaving TSS at 6.30 for the J16 4+ of Oli, Stefan, Calvin and Laurence with Cosmo coxing. Getting the boys awake for the heat was a struggle, but they woke up after about 500m and rowed confidently past Eton to win and go to the final where they faced the best J16 rowers from Hampton, St Paul's, Latymer Upper and London Oratory. The crew were under strict instructions to go out really hard, and this they did, leading by a second from Latymer at 500, extending this to three seconds at halfway, with the best rowing they have done to date. At 1500m they were still three seconds up but St Paul's were closing. A cool last 500 saw the boys just hold off St Paul's to win by 0.8 s, with the rest of the field four seconds back. Chris and Smithy (the St Paul's coach) had been eagerly anticipating the clash all year and weren't disappointed.

Only seventy minutes after the fours race the J16s boated for the J18 quads but this was really too short a break and despite sculling well they were just too tired. The J18 quad of Sam, Marcus, Michael and Luke fared better and were 13th fastest of 30 crews. This didn't quite get them into the repechage but was still a good scull.

The junior contingent was completed with Meg in WJ18 sculls, who won her heat well then similarly dominated the final, beating a sculler who had featured in the recent GB Junior trials. So this was a good result to put her in good heart for Munich Junior Regatta, for which she and Marcus have been selected.

The Senior Men also attended, with the club four of Eddie Beckett, Tom Chung, Marcus Jonas and Tom Bond coxed by Ruairadh McPhee doing the best, winning their heat to make the final then losing by less than two seconds. CFW
