The win was well-deserved for ladies who had shown real dedication to training throughout the Michaelmas term. They knocked off some very strong crews with ease, and it wasn’t uncommon for marshals along the bank to wonder whether they were entered in the novice or senior division. This victory was Wolfson’s biggest novice accomplishment in “living memory.”The Women’s Novice ‘B’ crew — Maryanna Price (bow), Maria Kopsacheili (2), Isabel de Berrié (3), Ynhi Thai (4), Janette Chow (5), Zoe van der Hoven (6), Ingrid Cloete (7), Sonya Ziaja (str), coxed by Susan Graham and coached by Stephanie Solywoda — also fought a good fight, but unfortunately succumbed to a wardrobe / rowing seat malfunction.
We are still searching for information about the men’s crews entered into Nephthys Regatta 2011. If you participated or know anyone who did, please contribute your stories and photos or e-mail the webmaster.
