The more casual side of the club went to Burton regatta. On Saturday over the long course Toby Buxton won Junior 14 sculls and Seb Chapman won Junior 17 sculls. On Sunday on the shorter course Albert, Richard, Steve and Canice lost the final by 3 feet to Loughborough. It was 40 years to the day that Canice had won his first rowing trophy at Burton. The fairy tale did not quite happen.
