RSSBC: Fours Head of the River

Monday 13 November 2017

Six Shrewsbury crews took to the water at the Fours Head of the River on the Tideway in London on Sunday 12th November. The event saw close to 500 crews racing.

The Boat Club had three boys’ crews entered into the junior fours event, the fastest of which (pictured above) came away with a very strong third place out of 30 crews. The second and third were 16th and 21st respectively (pictured below).

One RSSBC crew was entered into the junior boys’ quads event (pictured below). Despite having to negotiate some traffic on the course, they produced a solid result coming in 14th out of 52 crews.

Two girls’ quads raced in the junior women’s quads events (pictured below) and came 10th and 22nd out of 34 crews.

Well done to all those steering, who safely navigated what can be a challenging course with lots of other crews around.
