Six members of Tywi Boat Club’s Rowing section have been selected in the GB squad for the World Coastal Rowing Championship to be held in Monaco this October.
Bryony Jones, Swyn Williams Jac Davies, Charlie Heath, Aron Altman, and Tom Miles have all been included in the 30 member squad for the championship. Considering that this squad is chosen from the whole of GB that’s a pretty massive statistic for a little village, and is a tribute to Nicola Jayne and all the Rowing team at Pilglas who have enabled these youngsters to progress in a remarkably short space of time to a point where they are now competing for international honours on a world stage.
Both Bryony, Swyn, and Charlie are ranked as GB No. 1, with Aron as GB 2, and Tom and Jac as GB 5 in their respective classes. They will need to raise a four figure sum to compete later this year, so keep an eye out for fund raising events to build up the required funds. Well done to all at the Rowing section in Pilglas, and congratulations especially to the members chosen for the team.
