Strathclyde Uni BC's Fours & Small Boats Head



Whilst the remainder of the club set off into the sunny Tay for a productive day of paddling, our girl’s squad travelled down to the rainy river of Glasgow, returning to keep their title in the W R2 4+ at Strathclyde University Boat Club’s Fours & Small boats head!

Despite a last-minute slip up with the Sports Union buses and a resulting lack of boats to be transported… our friends at SUBC very kindly went above and beyond to provide us with our two boats for the day. In the first division was our top girls 4, fresh from the New Year’s break and ready to continue their domination in their category. With Isabella steering them down the Clyde they completed the 4000m course in a whopping 15:52! And better yet they still bagged some medals to boast about, despite there being a disqualification leading to little to no competition!

Into the next and final division of the day, our ginger flame Eleanor Brinkhoff took to the water in her single for the W R2 1x. She made easy work of the two Clyde ARC scullers and powered down the course to take another gold medal!

After the medal ceremony was over, pictures taken and thanks to Strathclyde received, the girls travelled back up to Dundee already eager to focus on the next race!
