Kingston SBH 12/11/06

J15 1x

James Coxhead clocked up yet another win to add to his collection as he came through and beat fellow Weybridge man Jack Shepard in a fantastic time, crowning him King of the River for J15 singles, an event he continues to excel in.

WJ16 2x

The formidable duo of Kirsten and Diana showed just why they already have a large collection of silverware as they came through some tough competition to comfortably win the event, crowning themselves winners once more.

Henley Sculling Head 4/11/06

WJ16 2x

Diana Llewellyn and Kirsten Owens recorded their first head win of the new season in style, coming a full 40 seconds ahead of their nearest opposition. Their time of 14:24 was a good reflection of all the hard work that the girls have been putting in so far this season with new coach Paul Willcocks. This result shows that Weybridge RC is ready to compete with the 'big boys' of the rowing world.

Weybridge Silver Sculls 21/10/06

J15 1x

James Coxhead gave his new Carl Douglas single - Hummingbird - the perfect debut as he powered home in the J15 single event in a time of 18:17. He beat 11 other J15 scullers to open his Head race account for the new season. This win was just rewards for all the hard training that James put in over the summer.

Cambridge Autumn Regatta 10/9/06


The real success story of the day was the mens Novice coxed four. Alex Tarrant, Matt Beagley (Walton RC), Matt Tarrant, James Whittingham and cox Tom Capel went through 3 rounds to finally win the N4+ event. The boys had been at it all summer, and were so close at W&WR, but at the final regatta of the season won the event with excellent performances against Milton Keynes, Medway Town and Peterborough. The win was especially memorable for Matt Tarrant as in winning this event he claimed his first win in his rowing career.

WS4 4x

The girls quad got back to 'Winning Weys' again with a strong performance against Maidstone RC. The crew of (from stroke) Julia Lowes, Georgina Grant, Emma Disher and Kirsten Owens were racing in an event several times up from their current J16 level, but showed that they meant buisiness by beating a much older and experienced crew in typical Weybridge bravado and style.  

J 4x

For the second time in as many weeks, the boy's J16 quad were victorious, this time racing up a level in the 'Junior' event. The crew of Jackson Lippold, Chris Jones, George Flowerday and Tom Capel easily beat Globe RC in an eventful final. About 10 strokes after the start, the Globe RC bowman decided he liked the look of Weybridge's water and promptly entered it and in doing so clashed blades with Jackson in the stroke seat. The bow three of our boat dug in and powered past the Globe boat until Jackson was able to row. The boys sculled a powerful race when free and looked very neat and strong.

Lea Regatta 3/9/06

J14 1x

James Piercy won his first regatta 'pot' in spectacular style as he pipped his Royal Docks RC opponent to the line by just 2ft. This win was a just reward for all the hours of training he has put in on the water over the summer months.

J16 4x

The crew of Jackson Lippold, Chris Jones, George Flowerday and Tom Capel overcame Lea RC as they cruised home for a 2L win. The quad was excellently paced by strokeman Jackson and bowman Tom steered the deceptive course well whilst middle pair Chris and George - who won his first race for the club today - provided the grunt.

J16 2x

Chris Jones and Tom Capel beat the hosts, Lea, and then their clubmates Jackson Lippold and Tristan Davies in the final to clinch yet another event win. In the semi-final the pair sculled a tidy and powerful race, cruising over the line before Lea to book their place in the final. In the final they faced a Weybridge RC crew, and whilst it is never easy racing your clubmates, Tom and Chris weren't hanging around as they beat their opposition by a length.

N 1x

Alex Tarrant finally secured his first piece of pewter as he overcame two other scullers in a controlled and tidy sculling display. Unfortunately the event wasn't 'qualifying' as there were only three entries, but this win signifies the start of something big.

Staines Regatta 22/7/06

J15 2x

The Lippold/Jordan, Weybridge/Walton combo ended the day as as the overall winners of J15 doubles after beating some tough opposition in the final. They went home to find something to shine their new silverware.

J14 1x

James 'Fred' Coxhead produced yet another fantastic win for the club in J14 sculls where he came through against some tough opposition in a final and comfortably beating them past the post to go home with a request for new shelving towards his Dad.

J14 2x 

The J14 double scull pairing of James Amico and Jack Shepard beat  Staines competitors in the final, and are looking forward to re-creating it at Burway.

Bedford Star Regatta (Sunday) 11/6/06

S4 1x

James Whittingham powered to his second regatta win of the season with a strong performance against a Bedford Star RC sculler. Although the race was close coming through the bridge, James kept his composure and his strong finish fended off his challenger to continue his impressive run of form in the single scull. Before the final, James had a row over as his LEA RC opposition did not turn up.

J15 2x

The double of Tom Oxton and Jackson Lippold left the perfect conditions of Bedford Star Regatta with one of the trademark 'blue-china pots' each. In their first round they overcame Weybridge RC 'C', a double of Tristan Davies and Callum Russel. In their semi-final they beat Star Club comfortably, sculling a nice, easy race to cruise across the line and into the final. The final was an all-Weybridge one, with the double of Chris Jones and Tom Capel facing the eventual victors. Chris and Tom had beaten Peterborough RC in the semi-final in the fastest J15 2x time of the day, and the final was set to be a thriller. Off the start the crews were neck and neck, and the close fought race continued up towards the bridge. However, disaster struck for Chris and Tom as their blades scraped the inside of the bridge as they tried to sheer off some of the course (which to be fair was a very tricky one). The incident marred a potentially classic race as Tom and Jackson were first past the finish line.

Weybridge Ladies Regatta 4/6/06

WJ15 4x+

The J15 girls of Weybridge Rowing Club made it 4 wins in 4 races after overcoming some tough opposition. The crew of Julia Lowes, Diana Llewellyn, Emma Disher, Kirsten Owens, and coxwain Tom Capel, beat Weybridge Ladies RC in the first round by 2/3 of a length. In the semis they faced Ardingly RC, but beat them easily. The final was a much closer affair. The crew faced Sir William Perkins, who had beaten Maidenhead in the semi-finals. However, the WRC girls (and cox) out powered their competitors to claim a close victory, despite some dangerous and erratic steering from William Perkins.

WJ15 2x

The girls pairing of Julia Lowes and Emma Disher produced two powerful performances to fend off challenges from their clubmates, Kirsten Owens and Diana Llewellyn, and from Sir William Perkins. The girls, who had won the quad event earlier in the day, had a reletavely comfortable win over their WRC opposition in the semi-finals, and a 1L win over William Perkins in the final.

 Thames Ditton Regatta 13/5/06

J14 4x+

Jack Shepard, James Capel, James Piercy, James Amico and coxwain Tom Whittingham overcame two crews to win the J14 4x+ plate event. The quad were unluckily beaten in the first round of the main event by Kingston Grammar School, who looked very impressive, and despite the Weybridge quad looking quick, they just didn't have the firepower to win the race. Despite this loss, the quad bounced back in the plate event overcoming Whitgift and Tiffin to claim their plate event medals. Expect to see more results from this crew in the future.

J14 1x

James Coxhead registered his first single scull win of the regatta season after overcoming two Kings Canterbury School scullers. He won his semi-final comfortably, and his final by literally half the 1050m course!

J18 1x

James Whittingham collected his first regatta pot of the season today, as he put on an excellent display of sculling. After beating a Burway RC sculler in the quater-finals, he progressed to the semis where he was the victor over another Burway RC competitor. In the final James faced a Dulwich College sculler, but continued his fine run of form to win his event.

Evesham Regatta (Sunday) 30/4/06

J15 2x

The pairing of Tom Capel and Chris Jones made their way through three tough rounds to beat a very strong Stourport crew in the final. They had a comfortable 5 length quater-final win against Evesham RC, followed by a closer semi-final win against Llandaff RC. The final was a closer affair, with Tom and Chris just pipping the powerful Stourport crew at the finish, with the stagger in their favour, and possibly one of the best wins the boys have ever experienced.

WJ15 4x+

Are they ever going to get beaten? Kirsten Owens, Emma Disher, Diana Llewellyn, Georgina Grant and cox Julia Lowes produced a 3/4 of a length win over their Stourport oppostition. The quad had a bye to the semi-finals, where,  with the help of some excellent steering from Julia Lowes, they had a comfortable win against Llandaff RC. The crew then maintained their 100% winning record with a powerful performance against Stourport.
