Wolfson College Boat Club, Oxford

Bewdley Regatta 1997

There we seven entries in WS3 VIII’s, and Wolfson won their first round heat against Northwich in a very close race. In the quarter finals we were beaten by a very fast Manchester University crew which eventually went on to win the event. Sadly this was also the final race for Andrea Ambrovicsova, a long and loyal servant to Wolfson College Boat Club. We will all miss her greatly.

Crew: Andrea Ambrovicsova, Renee Menezes, Sabine Heinz, Fiona Ryan, Marilyn Mielke, Jo Aixill, Theresa Salter and Natasha Hill. Coxed by John Pinot and coached by Doug Befroy. John has been asked to lose weight because it is felt that his 12 stones slow the boat down. He has since cut down his intake of beer from 12 pints to 11 pints a day!
