  • The following weekend was the Women’s Head of the River where our 1st VIII came a promising 138th overall and, perhaps more importantly, 11th in their category. The crew had literally just two outings and the Hammersmith Head from which to gel and were missing a couple of athletes through injury, but were still just 15 seconds off being up where last year’s crew was proving that there is much to play for in the summer

    Women’s Head of the River - March 15th: 

  • Women’s 1st VIII (Smith, Kruimel, Walters, Hill, Taylor, Nicholls, Batchelor, Grant, and  cox was - Malik, F) came 138th overall and 11th in IM3 Club

  • Our men then headed off to Kingston Head with the luxury of some water time under their belts. Problems struck the First VIII though with two stroke siders having to drop out at the last minute through injury and illness. However, the crew got a very pleasing result despite rowing a long way below what they have shown in training. The Second VIII, made up of equal numbers of subs and crew members, had a difficult day being help back by a Marshall on the way up to the start after the six man’s footplate fell apart and being made to start last before seeing that they had been bested in the final standings by our Novice Men. Olly Cobb’s crew is a huge credit to him and rowed like tigers at Kingston. All eyes will be on them to see if they can beat the Second VIII at the Head of the River this Saturday.
