BRC win at Bedford Dragon Boat Race

Posted In : Bedford Rowing Events Latest News Wins
One of the most popular events from the Bedford River festival came back for a special charity event in 2013. Community groups and clubs from across Bedford entered Dragonboat crews in aid of three local charities, Autism Bedfordshire, Bedford Foodbank and Bedford Sea Cadets.
Fresh from their victory at the Bedford Sprint Regatta last week Josh Harris, Andy Darnell and Mike Evans were joined by a number of BRC members including novices, experienced rowers and juniors to add another win to their growing resume, this time with a different type of oarmanship. Bedford Rowing Club entered 2 full crews and both crews started well, winning each of their own first heats. Each heat was a straight 3 way race over 300m between the suspension bridge and Bedford town lock.
The Women’s crew achieved a very respectable 11th place, while the Men’s crew fought all the way through to the final to take victory by the narrowest of margins over Ampthill Rugby Club.
Winning Crew List: Andy Darnell, Gareth Edwards, Mike Evans (Club Captain), Luke Macintyre, Sam Agass, Tom Anderson, Alistair Redman, Rob Bell, Josh Harris, Lewis Cleaver with Corrine Larkworthy drumming.
