Mixed Masters E 2X UK Nationals at Notting won by Andy and Ching

On Sunday the 18th of May 2014 Ching Kilby and Andy Taylor competed at Nottingham’s Holme Pierrepoint course in the UK Masters Championship. A tricky course with a notorious cross wind which often gives advantage to crews drawing lower numbers. Sculling the trusty Janousek The Browns Andy and Ching were in lane four, sculling against a great line up with crews from all over the country. There were some familiar crews from 2013;  Dart Totnes, Bewdley & Grosvenor the latter who beat them last year known for having a really fast finish.  At the start the wind pushed the BOARC crew over the marker buoys, they were warned by the umpires, this was just the spur they needed to kick them up a gear. Ching sat at stroke making all the important calls. In the ‘last 200’ they just gave it everything they had, with burning chests and difficulty breathing they pass the finish, a close call but they knew they had done well and waited with baited breath for the result announcement. They Won! This means they now have won two out of the three major rowing completion in the UK master 2014 rowing calendar; they won the Pairs Head in London in the winter in the same category, so – next stop Henely Masters in July! Well done Ching and Andy.
