Congratulations to Susanna Holt and David Richardson for their success at the 2012 Henley Masters Regatta.
In the Women’s D 1x Category, Susanna reached the final but had a bad start against Wood (Durham University) who quickly took clear water. Susanna managed to gradually reel her back in and finished with a fantastic sprint, but was narrowly beaten (official verdict 1/3rd length, but reported to be less by spectators).
In the Mixed D 2x, Susanna and David won their final against an experienced double from Norwich Rowing Club by three lengths, having beaten crews from Upper Thames and Malta (USA) in earlier rounds. The BigBlade website has photos of the race and of the medal presentation.
We hope to see Susanna and David racing again in the World Rowing Masters Regatta in Duisburg, Germany in September.
