British Rowing trials for 2024 got off to a flying start in Boston, Lincolnshire as over a hundred athletes descended on the winding course to place their strongest hand in preparation for the events to come.

Behind her, Bass Andre finished seventh representing Molesey Boat Club whilst Molly Curry was a few seconds back in eighth for Queen’s University Belfast.
