Ghent Regatta

13-14 May 2023

Bev & Trev organised a brilliant trip to compete in the Ghent Regatta

We took a team of 8 including Cameron, Arthur, Dylan, Philippe and Mollie from our racing team A, Charlie our sole veteran racer and we borrowed Annabel from Reading, Isaac from Royal & Ethan from Foy and made them wear Devizes vests!

We had a hugely successful 2 days amassing loads of medals. The girls won gold and silver in every single race they entered! Our boys amassed 16 medals & 1 trophy between them.

And we didn’t get rained on once.
