  • Taunton Rowing Club began its autumn competitions with an entry of ten crews in the Monmouth Rowing Club Autumn Head of the River; a course of 2350m. Crews competing in a number of age, skill and boat type categories.  The entry was a 50% increase over last year and reflects the steady growth of the club. The weather was perfect with blue skies and no wind providing a perfect summer day in early autumn.

     A major success of the day was a win by Sam Smith and Kyran Foster in a double scull. They beat crews from Monmouth and Swansea and were 40 seconds ahead of the second placed crew. On the ladies' side, Amy Hallet and Rosie Lewes came within 5 seconds of the winning crew.

     Several of the rowers were glutton's for punishment and competed twice in double and single sculls while Amy Hallet set a challenge for men in future heads by rowing in three different divisions and hence clocking up almost 10,000m on the river - she slept well later!

     Thanks are due to Steve Sanger, Club President, who drove the minibus and trailer.


    TRC is currently based near French Weir but expects to move to a new boat-house at French Weir when the COACH project is completed next year. It caters for all ages and skill levels with a strong focus on teaching youngsters and others to row. Contact details:  www.britishrowing.org/clubs/taunton-rc or call 01823 432724.
