Our junior boys’ quad reached the semi final of the Fawley challenge at Henley Royal Regatta.
In a very strong field, Alexander Patton, Ben Nussey, Hector Patton and Freddy Foxwell beat Hinksey Sculling School and Hereford Cathedral School to reach the semi final.
The boys lost out in that race to an exceptional crew from Windsor Boys’ School – the crew that went on to win the final later – but the whole club is proud of the way they raced and the work they put in to get this far.
Well done also to our men’s crew, who pre-qualified for HRR, making them the first Scottish club in the Thames Challenge in 25 years. Despite a very gutsy row, they were beaten by St Catherines Rowing Club, Canada.
Our Fawley B crew also raced well at qualifiers, only narrowly missing out.
Congratulations to everyone involved.
