Carpenter and Hall impress for Maidenhead Rowing Club at Pairs Head race in London

There was a fine victory for the WJ16 double sculls team as Maidenhead Rowing Club recorded some excellent results in this year’s Pairs Head race in London.

The Pairs Head is the first big Tideway head races of the year and more than 400 crews ranging from j16s to veterans took on the 4.5km course.

Fortunately the forecasted rain didn’t materialise and the crews raced in relatively benign conditions.

The club’s outstanding result of the day came in the WJ16 double sculls where Amelia Carpenter and Olivia Hall – racing together for the first time since becoming British Junior champions at WJ15 level – came home 14 seconds ahead of second placed Sir William Perkins School.

The juniors also recorded second places in the J16 Senior category with the J16 Double Scull of Max Bird and Jacob Ioras and with the WJ18 Championship Double Scull of Izzy Sellars and Alexandra Hollis. 

There was also an excellent showing from the club’s older crews, with the masters E double scull of Sue Harker and Laura Lion steering themselves to a second placed finish. Piers Alington and Steve Janisch were also second in the masters G pairs race.

Other Maidenhead crews finished fourth and seventh respectively in the WJ16 double sculls, fourth and fifth in the masters E championship pairs; seventh in the J16 senior double sculls, 12th in the J18 senior double sculls, fourth in the women’s intermediate double sculls, 15th in the WJ18 championship double sculls, fourth in the masters D double sculls, eighth in the masters e double sculls.
