National Combined Regatta
Fantastic Result for Nottingham
This year's National Combined Regatta, held at the ExCel Centre in London, saw Nottingham walk away with the gold trophy for Rowing Boathandling representing Eastern Area. This is the first time Nottingham have won the competition in as long as we can remember, so everybody is incredibly proud!
The unit will hold the trophy for a year, although hopes are high that we can retain it at next year's competition!
The team consisted of POC Lena Urbacz, LC Edward Pooler, OC Josh Taylor, CDT Ben Hunter and CDT Liam McGrory. LC Hayley Filsell has also been involved in the team this year, entering the area competition whilst POC Urbacz was in Canada.
Congratulations to CPO M Woolley who has been training teams for this event for the past ten years and has finally achieved his goal!

Also attending the National Regatta was AC Alice Love-Twelves who achieved a Silver medal in her kayaking event. Alice has since left the unit to join Welbeck Defence College and we wish her the best of luck in the future.
