Henley Women's Regatta and Marlow Regatta took place over the second-to-last weekend in June, with athletes from the senior squads and J15 boys competing at Henley and Dorney.
The qualifying races for Henley Women's Regatta took place on Friday 22nd June for the J16 crew, and Saturday 23rd June for the J18 crew. With hot, sunny weather both days and very little wind, the conditions were perfect! Having placed 10th at National Schools Regatta few weeks prior, the J16s raced hard and just missed out on qualifying for the quarter finals, placing 10th again - just two positions and four seconds off the qualifying position. The J18s rowed well to place 24th, with just sixteen crews qualifying for side-by-side racing.
J16 quad: Jojo Blyth, Harriet Wilson, Mae Willoughby, Phoebe May
J18 quad: Poppy Marshall, Maryse Girgis, Bonnie Coughlan, Alice Vine
On the same weekend as Henley Women’s Regatta a small contingent of three boats of boys raced at Marlow Regatta on Dorney Lake. With the main regatta season well underway the standard was high. All events had a time trial in the morning and then seeded finals in the afternoon. The J18 Boys coxed four (Hugo, Fred, Archie and David, coxed by Stan) placed 6th in the time trial and then raced very well in their first side-by-side race of the season to place 5th in the final. Next was the J15 Boys coxed quad who raced well to place 11th in the time trial and then move up a place to finish 4th in the B final and 10th overall. In one of the most competitive events of the regatta the J18 Boys Quad raced in the D Final, placing 5th in their side-by-side race.
J18 coxed four: Hugo Binnian, Fred Trott, Archie Licudi and David Angiolini, coxed by Stan Cannons.
J15 coxed quad: Jacob Taylor, Nick Adam, Freddie Basil and Harry Gant, coxed by Caleb Pell.
J18 quad: Rafe Stanford-Meisl, Will Wakefield, Drew Clark and Stan Cannons.
