While the top juniors were at trials in Boston, the senior Nottingham Rowing Club women’s eight and their coach Dez Atkins, spent the weekend at the National Watersports Centre at Holme Pierrepont rowing against the Cambridge Women’s Blue Boat, their reserve eight and their lightweight crew.

Nikki Spencer, Beth Lloyd, Catherine Lineker, Laura Wheeler, Sarah Bonar, Lindsay Marshall, Ellie Whittle and stroke Katie Bartlett with Vicky Atkins coxing, took the opportunity to tune up for the coming Head of the Trent on Sunday March 3rd and the Women's Eights Head on Saturday 9th March.

Said coach Dez: "We went well on both days; we were a little slower than the Blue Boat but quicker than the reserves and lightweights. I am very pleased with our performance over the whole weekend. A special mention to junior club member Lucy Mason who subbed in the reserve boat for every row!"
