Club junior rowers Lewis and Bradley Perry-French participated in this year’s edition of the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships, entering in the Year 12 boys event. The lads, who are also members of Herne Bay Amateur RC, completed the 2,000-metre event during the 3-day competition window, both of them not just achieving but surpassing their targets.
Not just surpassing their targets, the Perry-French twins both medalled at the event, with Lewis getting silver for his time of 6 minutes 32.5 seconds, and Brad bronze, with his time of 6 minutes 36.1 seconds. Fabulous effort from the two lads, with Lewis just a mere 3 seconds from the overall winner in their category. Really well done!
The lads’ next event will be the National Schools Regatta, where they will enter the double-sculls event – best of luck to them!
