Shawnigan Lake School- The Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup 2014

I’m going to release the information that I have on the foreign crews first, as most people know about the domestic players. My crew profiles will be ‘bite-sized’ and accessible so that they are a reference point; I’ll be placing all of this info onto the Regatta Radio wiki-page so feel free to check there too.

Additional Information

Shawnigan are a talented unit from Canada who have raced at a pretty high level through the summer. Having had a disappointing national championships, where they were forced to make a medical substitution on the day of the event, they are looking to impress in England. They did well to make the final at the CSSRA and I don’t think it was a true reflection of their speed. They are accompanying a very talented junior women’s quad, who won national gold in Canada.

My Prediction

I don’t think they’ll have the fire-power to challenge the top British crews but I can see them making it past the Wednesday and, depending upon the draw, possibly the Thursday too.
