Aimee travelled to Grafton with her mum to compete in the Combined High schools Championships having won the under 16 single last year at SIRC.
Heavy winds were expected though the regatta went ahead as planned.
Aimee raced up an age group and competed in the schoolgirl single. She won her heat which placed her in a good lane for the final, which could prove useful in windy conditions. She had a good race in the final and she was happy with her performance, going away with second place, only three seconds behind the winner.
She also had the opportunity to jump into an inter regional eight which was a good experience and the crew came second.
Our next school events for our junior rowers will be the Schoolgirl and Schoolboy Head of the River's on the 16th and 17th March respectively.
