Monday 18 March 2019

The Boat Club took five crews to race at the Schools’ Head of the River in London on Friday 15th March, the most prestigious event of the 'head' calendar.

2nd VIII

Due to the strong winds forecast, three other crews were unfortunately not able to race.

The event went ahead with the reduced field in fast tailwind conditions. All the crews handled the conditions well in marshalling and produced some encouraging results.

The 1st VIII came in 5th of 34 crews.

The 2nd VIII put in an outstanding performance and only narrowly missed out winning their event by 1.2 seconds. They finished 2nd of 15 crews and a very impressive 11th overall, beating many 1st VIIIs.

The J16A VIII came 8th of 22 crews.

The J15A VIII came 6th of 11 crews.

The Senior Girls’ VIII came 9th of 19 crews.
