Pupil focus – Tom Stanley
The Hants and Dorset regattas come to a close at the end of August. So far this season Tom has taken part in 10 regattas, rowing in both river and coastal races as part of a coxed 4 team. He is the youngest member of his crew by nearly 3 years. He started the season as a member of a novice crew and they were quickly promoted to the junior section after winning the novice four in Ryde on the Isle of Wight (see photos) He and his crew members are now competing against some very experienced adult men teams. They came third in junior coxed race in Newport, also on the Isle of Wight a couple of weeks ago. He will be taking part in several other regattas during July and August, including u16 single scull.
