Wycliffe Small Boats Head 2008

The morning of Saturday 6th December saw a crisp autumn morning in Bath with beautiful clear skies and a light dusting of frost! The day continued in the same way with blue sky all day but with a bit of a nip in the air and Arnold commented that they were some of the best racing conditions he'd seen at Wycliffe.
With the trailer overflowing (Arnold generously took two boats on his car) Minerva headed off to Wycliffe. With numerous singles, pairs and the occasional double, our onslaught on the medal table went quite well and by the end of the 3 divisions we came away with 7 Golds, 6 Silvers and 2 Bronzes making Minerva the most successful club at the event if organizing the medal table the way they do it at the Olympics!!!
In the process, Vicky notched up a new course record in WS1 1x, Lucy did the same in WS3 1x, Helen in WS4 1x and Vicky and Gemma in WS2 2-.
Max and James finished just outside the medals in J15 2x and stepped up to the challenge well in S4 1x finishing 5th and 6th. Ruth and Katy battled their way down the course finishing 8th in their respective singles categories whilst Gary and Andy snatched Gold in S2 2- and 2nd in E2-.

Gemma and Vicky on the way to setting a new course record in WS2 2-.
