Fittingly, our eldest team member, Ev Seyler, started the 'day of medals' by take a silver medal in the LTWT I1x event.
Our Club B4x of Ryan N., Tom B., Steve G. and Ian H. put on a technical show for us and 'dorsi-flexed' their way to a silver medal.
Staying with the small boats, Matt C. and Hector D. rowed to a gold medal in the Open A2- event. A great effort by this pair and big win for both.
