National Schools Regatta 2021 - Dorney Lake

The National Schools Regatta, which annually draws in over 5.000  junior competitors from all over Great Britain but was a Covid casualty in 2020, was held again this year on Saturday 29th and 30th May on the Olympic course at Dorney Lake, Eton. A  group of 21 athletes from the Aberdeen Schools Rowing Association entered what was their first competitive rowing event in over a year, signed up for 5 events and medalled in two of them.

In the Girls’ Championship Coxless Pairs event Zoe Beeson and Maisie Aspinall dominated the field in both Time Trial and A Final to bring back gold and the Leander Cup back to Aberdeen and ASRA’s senior boys – Matthew Hughson, Ashley Geddes , Gregor Charles  & William Penny – won  silver in the A Final of the Boys’ Championship Coxless Fours event, gold going to the St Georges College Boat Club foursome from Waltham -on-Thames.

Elsewhere ASRA’s  J17 boys – Alex Fowler, William Lawson, Joe Ritchie & William Cooper , coxed by Erin Gibson -  won the B Final of the Boys’ Championship Coxed Fours event with a time that would have placed them 5th in the A final and ASRA’s J16 Girls -  Charlotte Arthur, Freya Hughson, Sophie Sinclair, Phoebe McCraith, Ella Brooks, Emily Simpson, Freya Cummine & Gemma Collins, coxed by Erin Gibson - fought their way through to a second place in the B Final of the fiercely competitive Girls’ Junior 16 Eights event some 4 seconds ahead of the Irish girls from the Enniskillen Royal Boat Club.

A magnificent effort all round and the best performance of any Scottish club at the event. Our thanks go as always to our volunteer coaches and drivers whose hard work and dedication. prior to, during and after the regatta, made these outstanding results possible.
