The crew consists of Beth Bryan and Charlotte Davies who row for Tees RC and are members of Tees Active Sports Academy and Charlotte Cook who rows for Tees RC and Sara Parfett who rows for Bath University. The girls have been selected after winning at Women’s Henley and reaching the quarter final at Royal Henley over the past few weekends.
The girls who are coached by Lauren Fisher who is British Rowing’s World Class Start coach based at Tees Rowing Club will be competing in the women’s four and women’s eight as they take on international crews from Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Beth Bryan said “It is great to be selected as the England crew and to be rowing with our club mates is going to make the regatta extra special and will be doing our utmost to be the top crew in Cork.”
Charlotte Davies added “I am delighted to be representing my country and after only taking up rowing seriously a couple of years ago this really makes all those hours of winter training worthwhile.”
