A very gutsy row last Friday by our girls in a blustery head wind (and as you know they are not a large crew – see photo below) saw them come agonisingly close to qualifying for Henley Royal in a very tough field, missing out by only two places.

They beat the only overseas entry that was made to do the qualifiers by 40 seconds. And a host of other smaller clubs like our own.

Well done girls we are very proud that you made such a good go of it.

Next up for the club in two weeks time, Jen and Katy are off to Nottingham to do Home Countries trials and others of us race at Henley Masters and Kingston Regatta.
