Over the weekend our rowers faced very challenging conditions with a fast flow on the river and a very strong headwind at this years Worcester Head of the River event. In spite of this, our crews did a magnificent job and closed out a fantastic half term of rowing from the Boat Club.
Our Sixth Form Boys’ Quad of Ned M, Luke B, Matthew D and Jack B were victorious in the morning division in the J18 Quad Scull event. James S joined them in the afternoon, where they only missed out on winning the Senior Men’s Quad by half a second.
Our Sixth Form Girls lacked competition in their WJ18 8+, but benefited from rowing over the course and combined with the Fifth Form Girls in the afternoon, sharing their experiences of head racing.
It was a fantastic experience for our rapidly developing Upper Remove rowers, who are growing in confidence at every outing and proving to be extremely competitive.
We enjoyed many terrific performances over the course of the day and the spectators were thoroughly entertained by the crews racing by.
