Rowing Friendly – Town vs Gown – So Close Rematch Called!


MSBC vs MRC Jan 2018 webSaturday afternoon featured a hotly contested town v gown fixture down on the river.

The race was between a senior heavyweight eight from the School Rowing Club and Monmouth Rowing Club senior men’s eight.

After several miles of gruelling side-by-side work, the town club proved marginally faster than the School eight, but there was not a lot in it and a rematch in the coming months is on the cards.

Many thanks go to Monmouth RC for the racing and allowing the boys to get some good race practice for the major head of the river races later this term.
