Burton Leander’s ladies squad swept their way to a medal position in the Women’s 8 Masters A/B category at the British Rowing Masters Championships 2014 earlier this summer. Held at the National Watersports Centre in Nottingham over a 1000m course, the weather conditions were challenging due to the constantly changing wind directions. Despite the difficulties encountered in aligning the boats on the start pontoons, the club still managed to prove themselves as strong medal contenders.  It is the first time in the club’s 150 year history that a Masters category ladies 8 has come away with a medal at a National event.
