The Open coxless quad of Damen Sanderson, Henry George, Will Kerry and Chris Elder achieved an impressive time of 12:37 which was the third fastest time of the day out of over 50 crews competing on the Great Ouse’s 3,400 metre course.

Unfortunately their time was just five seconds short of King’s School Ely Boat Club who took first position in their event.

However Sanderson and Elder were able to take a win in the Masters A double. Their time of 13:27 secured them a win by 40 seconds.
