Newman dominates for Vikings at Egham
Published 07/07/14



SHIPLAKE VIKINGS took a reduced squad to Egham Regatta on Sunday as many entries were rejected as the regatta was hugely oversubscribed.

Oli Gerrard and Seb Newman were the Division 1 entries in the J16 single sculls and both scullers easily won their first rounds.

In the next round Gerrard met a Molesey sculler who, in a very tight race, won by a foot while Newman progressed to the semi-finals beating a Windsor Boys’ sculler.

After a convincing semi-final win Newman, racing one year in advance of his age group, came up against the sculler who had earlier beaten Gerrard. After much the better start Newman dominated the final winning by four lengths.

In Division 2 the girls’ double of Alina Budden and Milly Cook won their first round but were beaten by a canvas in the second.


The J14 boys’ quad of Ed Fry, Brett Fullard, Alfie Sheppard, Will Kidd, coxed by Belle Narracott made it through to the final where they beat Windsor Boys’ School by three lengths.

Christian Hjortland-Marks and Ollie Potter also made it through to the J15 double sculls event after having to re-start their quarter-final against Emanuel School three times. These extra races took their toll and they couldn’t match the power of a combined Staines/Walton double in the final.

In Division 3 the WJ15 quad of Milly Cook, Alina Budden, Maddie Curran, Mollie Robinson with cox Belle Narracott narrowly lost their first round race to Hinksey but the J15 double of Newman and Henry Blois-Brooke, racing in the J16 category, dominated their event and beat Falcon RC by two lengths in the final.
