TwRC at Henley Royal Regatta

Our Men's First VIII vs Putney Town at Reading Amateur Regatta
TwRC have entered two eights into The Thames Challenge Cup at this year's Henley Royal Regatta, both of whom race in this Friday's Qualifying Regatta at 5.21pm. Our First VIII had hoped for pre-qualification on the back of increasingly strong performances at Wallingford, Met and especially Reading, but with 55 entries for 32 places they will have to win their place on Friday. They will chase down two Thames RC crews with the aim of making the top 12 from 30 crews, so they can join the 20 pre-qualified crews.

Our Development VIII, made up of future TwRC stars, have been steadily improving in the run up to the qualifiers and are looking to pull off an upset. This crew, featuring rowers from the fringes of the Men's First VIII mixed in with powerful members of this year's novice squad, have a turn of speed that can worry far more experienced crews. They will race sandwiched between our First VIII and a useful Upper Thames crew.

First VIII: Wes Maccabe, Andy Watson, Chris Dixon, Pete Crush, Tim Moonen, Rory Bryant, Mike Dowell, Jake Nelson, Rosa Stan

Development VIII: David Fearon, James Traynor, Josh Meredith, Steve Parker, Christian Pedersen, Dan Kiernan, Jamie Wooller, Rob Boston, Maariya Malik

Good luck to both crews. Please come to support if you can - all the info you need is here.
