Ava rowed in a coxless double with her rowing partner, Dale Francis from Manchester Grammar School. They completed the course in 5hrs 17mins, placing 2nd in their category.

She is hoping to take part in the 100km Ringvaart Regatta in Amsterdam next year and we will watch with interest as her rowing career goes from strength to strength.

Congratulations on a great achievement, Ava!
