On January 26th, Derby Rowing Club members met at the club to watch this years livestream of the 2022 British Rowing Awards, of which we were nominated and shortlisted on two of the National Awards:
- Club Crew of the Year for our Wyfold Challenge Cup Crew
- Club of the Year
Our shortlisting in both of these categories is an absolutely fantastic result for our club and cements even further the incredible season we had last year.
On the night, our Club Crew of the Year just fell short of the win and the commendation, but a very well done to winners Mika Rosenfeld and Louise Allen of Bewl Bridge RC who had a fantastic season against the odds.
Regardless, a very well done to the Wyfold Challenge Cup Crew of James Crossley, James Walker, James Bennett and Ollie Hanks for their successes over the past year.
In the highly anticipated Club of the Year battle, Lea RC took home the win following a year where they put a great deal of work and effort into their community outreach programmes.
We were really proud to be commended by the panel, with them stating "The panel was particularly impressed by the combination of Derby’s growth, the way it welcomed members with a disability, and the level of the club’s success at competitions".
