RSSBC: Wallingford Head

Monday 27 November 2017

There were strong and encouraging performances from the six senior RSSBC crews who competed in the Wallingford Head on Sunday 26th November - particularly the J16 crew, who won their category.

We were kindly hosted by the Oxford University Boat Club, which made rigging and boating logistics very smooth.

It was tremendous to have two Senior girls’ eights racing at the event. They produced a strong performance that was noted by many of the spectators and their opposition. They came 3rd and 5th in the WJ18 VIII.

The Senior boys put out three crews, all of which performed strongly in their Open eights category. The two matched top boats would have placed 3rd and 4th in the J18 category behind the strongly performing St Pauls’ crews.

The J16s showed some good early season form, winning the J16 category. This was an encouraging showing from the boys against nine other crews and should provide some confidence for them off the back of the work done in recent months.

It was great to have a Sabrina (Old Salopian) crew racing at the event and winning their category with a strong performance.
