Grosvenor Novice Women's Grandparents were not even born when St Neots Rowing Club, in Cambridgeshire, held their first ever regatta in 1865 but they made their mark at the St Neots 150th Anniversary Regatta winning the Novice Women's division in style, at an event that every crew entered from Grosvenor Rowing Club, Chester made a final.
The Women's Novice boat of Mary Hoogland, Lottie Roberts, Grace Corris and Jess Hulson with cox James Bennion rowed in bright sunshine on the Great Ouse, beating Newark RC by 4 lengths in the first round and Globe RC easily in the semi-final.
The final was contested by 2 Grosvenor crews, the other boat of Eleanor Minshall, Katja Moir, Elizabeth Haigh and Vicky Brookes-Fazakerley having beaten Lincoln RC and Maidstone Invicta convincingly on the way Both boats got off to a great start before the winning crew edged in front to win by 2 lengths over the 1000 metre course. The presentation was carried out at the end of the day's racing and Grosvenor were awarded the impressive Town Goblet for their success and individually an engraved goblet to commemorate the occasion
