    Henley Regatta Lunch and 1960 Henley Winning Crew Row Past.

    This year's Henley Royal Regatta will take place from 1st-5th July and once again the School will be hosting lunch on Wednesday 1st July and the Sabrina Club will be hosting lunch on the Saturday 4th July. Look out for the marquee flying the Maltese Cross flag, which will be in the middle of Henley Cricket Ground. 

    We are hoping for some good results, so it would be great to see you there.

    Of particular interest this year is the fact that the 1960 Henley winning crew will be doing a row past during the afternoon tea interval on the Saturday. The 1960 crew did a similar row past in 2010 and 2000. This will be their last. 

    The average age is about 73. Two of the crew are coming over from the United States and one from Belgium. In their working lives (not over for some) the original crew included 2 University professors, a senior City lawyer, a GP, an engineering consultant (in charge of rigging the boat today), a management consultant and the Vice President of an international business.

    The crew was originally coached by the late Peter Gladstone, who coached 3 winning Shrewsbury crews in the Princess Elizabeth within seven years. The 1960 crew not only won in the final but also broke records all the way down the course, winning with some ease from the King's School Canterbury.

    The crew will be: 

    Stroke-Dan Rowland (Rt 58-60)

    7 -  Richard Owen (DB 56-61)

    6 -  Stuart Martell (SH 56-61)

    5-   Charles Gallimore (M 55-60)

    4 -  John Bannister (Ch 57-61) from the 1961 crew substituting for the late, and much missed, Nick Bevan (O 55-60)

    3     Patrick Balfour (SH 55-60)

    2 -   Colin Mackenzie (S 55-60)

    Bow- Stephen Shaw (M 56-61) from the 1961 crew substituting for Christopher Hartley (SH56-60), who is not well enough to row but who will be on the bank.

    The two substitutes are from the 1961 crew which also won the PE
