Festival 2022 Regatta - A Masonic Riverbank Tale...
Worcester Rowing Club
Saturday 21st July was a fabulous afternoon on the banks of the River Severn at Worcester Boat Club. Family and friends gathered to support and enjoy the exciting Cox 4's team races between the Provinces of Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Warwickshire and Staffordshire.
The Launch event was the much awaited challenge race between the Oxford Crew of Provincial Grand Master Robert Vaughan and the Cambridge Crew of Assistant Grand Master Sir David Wootton, with Sir David winning by a short length, or so!
The Regatta competition was fierce, each team battling to win their particular heats, and with an average age of 80 all the teams did amazingly well.
Congratulations to the finalists: 1st place Gloucestershire Ancients , 2nd place Worcester #1 (AsstGM) and 3rd place Worcestershire #2 (PGM) .
A sincere thank you to all masons, friends and supporters for providing the refreshments: jugs of Pimm's, tea, coffee, cakes and the BBQ. Also to those selling the duck race raffle tickets, face painting and various other stalls for the children's entertainment.
The afternoon closed with the presentation of medals to the finalists, click the link to see photos...
