Crews from Twickenham RC were out in force producing promising results in the Henley regattas over the past month.
First up were the women’s squad, entering two boats at Women’s Henley 19th – 21st June. Friday saw the qualifiers where only 16 of the 26 entrants could qualify with both crews producing strong results. The first eight qualified and the second eight, comprising of mainly novice rowers, missed out on qualification by just 7 seconds.
Saturday saw the first eight take on City of Cambridge in the first round and despite a strong row in a faster time than Friday’s qualifiers, City of Cambridge won by just over two lengths. However, Twickenham were amongst the fastest eight crews in round one, proving to be unlucky with the draw and showed a great improvement since the Metropolitan Regatta, held just a fortnight previous.
