Egham Regatta

Egham Regatta was a great opportunity for lots of the athletes to race in small boats, along a short (800m) but tricky course that proved difficult to steer!

With eighteen Hinksey crews entered it was a packed day, with good racing and valuable lessons learned in all crews. Particular congratulations to Elizabeth Ledgard-Hoile and Meara James (pictured above), who won the WJ13 2x event! Having won their 1st round, quarter-finals and semi-finals they faced Henley Rowing Club in the Final, which proved to be an exciting race to the line. The Hinksey 2x kept calm and composed as their opponents ventured further and further out of their station and into Hinksey's during the last bend of the race, with both crews locking blades across the finish line. After a brief moment of uncertainty the Umpire handed a deserved win to Elizabeth and Meara. Congratulations also to Poppy Marshall who made the final of the WJ16 1x and Alice Caldwell (WJ16 2x) who had her first race at Egham!
