Sculling Regatta, Dorney 14th May
This event is held on the 2000m Olympic course at Dorney Lake. Henley’s first win came from the J15 2x boys squad who walked away with a well-deserved bronze. The crew of Ed Roy and Dan Crick had to cope with a difficult cross wind and a slow start. But as the race progressed they advanced through the field to take bronze with a strong last 500 metre charge. Grant Taylor in J15 1x came 4th in his A final, narrowly missing a medal in a high quality field. Two junior girls crews were also competing. Both reached the ‘A’ final after the morning time trial.
The WJ15 crew of Georgia Brown, Amber Weller, Carla Russell, Hanna Hills and Cox Freya Reid, stormed out and gained a quarter length lead at 500m, this they increased to half a length by 1000m, and even though pressed hard in the last 500m by Latimer Upper School, Henley maintained their lead to finish in gold medal position.
