Champion of the Dee at Chester Regatta

The LRGS rowers had an excellent day at Chester Regatta, the oldest rowing regatta in the world, on Saturday 9 June.

The team won the Senior Victor Ludorum for Best Club as well as Open Quad, Single, Double and Tom Kerr was named “Champion of the Dee”.

The Year 9 Quad of Will Davis, Will Thornton, George Carney, Erik Tsepelin, Ted Jackson did really well competing in their first proper regatta. They won their first round against Kings School Chester but lost to the eventual winners in the semi-final.

It was a tough day for the Year 10 rowers, they all put in good performances but came up against very strong opposition. George Williamson was one of the few rowers to beat a J15 Trentham rower, but sadly came up against the eventual winner (again from Trentham) in the semi-final.

The Sixth Form rowers put in an incredible performance. Their results led to us being the eventual Victor Ludorum winners for the best Senior Cub.

Tom Kerr won the Single Sculls event and not only did he win the oldest and largest trophy for his efforts, but also the title of "Champion of the Dee".

Amos Daw and Richard Mead won the Double Sculls event - a tight first round win by a couple of feet then set them up to win the future rounds and the final by comfortable margins.

The quad of Ben Eaton, Tom Kerr, Richard Mead and Sam Gelder won the quad event comfortably.

Well done to all the rowers and a huge thanks to parents and staff for their support and encouragement.
