It was a great day for Trentham Boat Club Juniors at Chester Long Distance Sculls. This is an annual Head Race event that provides a 5Km course from Eccleston Ferry to Chester Groves. It is a popular race with over 300 entries run over 2 divisions. Our junior section had 15 entries in total. Well done to our new rowers Oliver, and Lucas, who rowed for the first time in a competitive race and to Aimee for rowing in a single for the first time. Amazing results by the Trentham Junior boats.
