Walton & Weybridge
A lovely start to the summer junior regattas at Walton and weybridge - the sun was shining but an intermittent breeze kept the temperature down and the rowers on their toes. This 1000m downstream, two lane race on the Thames had a lovely friendly atmosphere .

Stiff competition saw the J14 x1 and WJ14x4+ J14x2 go out on the first round .For some this was their first regatta.
The CRC girls (Emma cheetham and Lisa Berridge) WJ14 x2 made it through with a great win in first round but were beaten in the semi final.
