Over Christmas while everyone was gorging themselves with mince pies and roast turkey, Ed was training relentlessly. Unfortunately for him, he chose skiing and due to his vulnerability to injury, his knee broke like a Lib-Dem promise. Leaving him hospitalised and forced to spend his days in misery playing halo, while being tormented at the thought of being incapable to train. Meanwhile the quad was lucky enough to have the privileges of training in sub zero temperatures and the skin piercing rain. The quad is looking forward to kicking the competition in their bow balls at Hampton Head. Prepare to have your new boatclub socks thoroughly rocked off!
By Guy & Ed, J16
In the afternoon they were joined by Harry Lonergan and James Rudkin, also from Tideway, to win the J18 4x and with a time of 6.35:36, beat Windsor boys quad to the line by 7 seconds. Not only did they win the category and another medal but they also clocked up the fastest time of the day.
Well Done to you all!

Recently, I have been training at Molesey Boat Club under the watchful eye of Neasa Folan, who is an incredibly successful coach, having led numerous crews to victories at all abilities from club to international level.
Since being at Molesey, there has been a definite increase in the intensity of my programme and I am currently training 9 times a week. Having learnt lots of new aspects of the sport I never even knew existed before I feel I have progressed into a more competent rower.
With 7 World Class Start camps a year in Nottingham, these are times when you are required to perform, preparing you for the intensity needed at GB level and I feel that with every session undertaken, I am one step closer to achieving my aim of representing my country.
