Brookes, National Champions

At the weekend, the Boat Club had an incredibly successful regatta at the British National Championships, with the top crew winning the Championship ahead of Leander, Molesey and U.L. Fielding 9 eights, with 96 athletes racing, this was the largest Brookes contingent of men & women ever to represent Brookes at any competition.

After a great day’s racing, the Brookes crews came away with a fantastic set of results – one of the highlights being the women’s squad, winning a Bronze in the Women’s Elite Eights and their first podium ever at this event, along with the 2nd VIII going on to win the B-final.

The Men’s squad then topped off the day in style, with 3 crews represented in the A-final. The 1st VIII went on to win Gold, becoming National Champions in the Men’s Elite Eight, with the 2nd VIII coming 4th in the final, winning the University Pennant in the process.

A great squad performance from all the athletes. You can read the Oxford Time’s writeup of the event here.
