Armada Cup

Three Scullers women, with help from Headington School's trailer and the marvel that is Swiss public transport, spent a weekend in Bern at the Armada Cup.

Following the 250-boat mass start, they raced up the Wohlensee to Bern Rowing Club, a course that the organisers bill as 'about 9km', and made trickier by weed, sandbanks, narrow-span bridges and other hazards.

Caroline Matthews won women's masters A/B/C, while Aba Carboo was third, and Zoe Gullen sixth.

Upper Thames Autumn Head

There were wins on the Henley reach, in J16 quads, WIM3 and WJ16 doubles, and WME quads.

Mary Mortimer reports on the masters women's race:

A very misty day met us when we arrived in Henley, but luckily the weather didn't impede the 3000-metre race. Phoebe Daws at stroke, with Mary Mortimer, Clare Delmar and Sara Newton had a fantastic race, overtaking the crew ahead despite a near brush with the bank in pursuit of another crew.
