NICK WILSON won two medals for Bideford Reds in Gloucester's long-distance Autumn Head Race.
Competing over a 1,750-metre course, the junior 15 rower had success in the singles race in a time of 7mins 50secs.
Then he linked up with Dan Crowther, Matt Harris, Eden Brittle and cox Abbie Dunn to win the coxed quad in 7-02 – the fastest time of the day over the shorter course by 38 seconds.
The junior 15 girls – Abby Jones, Libbie Willis, Jess Cox and Abby Lawson, again coxed by Abbie Dunn – won their race in 7-41, 17 seconds ahead of Reds B's Kirsty Snow, Beth Gayson, Shannon Mongahan and Charlotte Berry in second.
Over a 5,000-metre course, the Reds veterans – Ali Peake, Dave Godfrey, Dave Powe, Dave Bates and cox Keeley Mills – missed out on a medal in the first division by just ten seconds. But their time of 21-10 was good enough to win the second division in their class.
This weekend, the veterans will be among 220 crews in the National Veteran Fours Head, held on the Thames.
