Lockdown training put to the test for Boat Club in Virtual Race

Wednesday 21 April 2021

At the end of the Lent Term the Boat Club took part in the Virtual Schools’ Head of the River which was held to replace the cancelled Schools’ Head traditionally hosted on the tideway in London.

The format of the racing was for crews to cover 2112m on the water in one direction and submit GPS files which recorded speed and distance.

The event provided a good focus for the crews in the final few weeks of the term and some very strong results to give some confidence and reward for the significant hours of training completed in through lockdown.
