RSSBC: Henley Royal Regatta preparations

Thursday 27 June 2013

The Boat Club will be sending two crews to the qualifying regatta which takes place tomorrow afternoon. The 2nd VIII will be racing at 7:40pm, hoping to secure one of the 15 remaining slots from the 45 crews required to qualify for the Temple Challenge Cup. The girls' 1st Quad will be racing at 4:25pm against 16 other crews for the four remaining places in the Junior Women’s Quadruple Sculls event.

The 1st VIII has prequalified for the Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup and will be eagerly awaiting the draw on Saturday afternoon to find out who their first opposition will be on Wednesday. The draw will see the top few selected crews separated to meet in the later stages of the event but if unlucky could pitch the 1st VIII against the National Schools' Regatta winners Abingdon or Australian National Champions Scotch College.

All three crews have made excellent progress throughout the course of the year and will be hoping to prove this on the famous 2112m reach of the Thames.
