Team WinTech rounded off the competitive season with 27 medals won by athletes and crews including 8 gold medal wins at the British Rowing Junior Championships. Across three days of racing at Strathclyde County Park, Scotland, thousands of juniors from across the UK – and even a few hailing from continental Europe – competed for honours on the national stage over disciplines ranging from J14 to J18.
Our first gold of the weekend came on the Friday, when Sir William Perkins (WinTech International) took the win in the women’s junior 16 double ahead of Trentham Boat Club and RGS Worcester. We rounded off the Friday with another victory in the open junior 18 quads, as the Windsor Boys School (WinTech International) reprised the title they won in 2022.
Saturday dawned bright and early and after a series of qualifying races, our first victory came in the women’s junior 15 doubles. Calpe Rowing Club of Gibraltar (WinTech Cobra) came in force for these championships and took the win in this category ahead of Lea Rowing Club and the City of Bristol, who were also racing in a WinTech.
In a stellar few minutes, the following race saw a WinTech crew finish first as the Windsor Boys (WinTech International) claimed victory in the open junior 15 coxed quads. Guildford, in bronze, were also representing the WinTech International shell. Our next win came in the open junior 16 coxless quads, as Grange School (WinTech Cobra) sculled home to a triumph ahead of Kingston Grammar School and the Windsor Boys School (also in a WinTech).
The following afternoon, our first of three golds came from Mark Wilkinson’s cohort as the Windsor Boys School (WinTech International) took the win in the open junior 14 coxed quads, which completed the set for male quad scull WinTech wins (75% of which also went to the Windsor Boys School).
In the following race, WinTech shells placed in gold and silver as Cantabrigian finished first and City of Bristol second in the women’s junior 14 doubles (both in WinTech Internationals). Our final win of the weekend came courtesy of yet another Windsor Boys triumph; they were winners in the open junior 18 coxless fours ahead of Great Marlow School and Aberdeen Schools’ Rowing Association.
WinTech crews were involved in a further 19 medals, including ten silvers and nine bronzes. Highlights included finishing second and third in the women’s junior 14 quads (Great Marlow School and City of Bristol in WinTech Internationals respectively) and open junior 18 pairs (Claires Court School and Nottinghamshire Counties Rowing Association in WinTech Internationals respectively).
Team WinTech have enjoyed yet another spectacular year of racing, culminating in a wonderful three days at the national junior championships. We look forward to supporting junior, U23 and senior athletes on the international circuit this summer and will be ready for another brilliant season from September onwards.
