Henley boys squad had two crews entered in the Fawley Challenge Cup for 4x. With a huge entry of some 70 crews and only 24 able to race in the regatta itself, both crews were required to qualify on the Friday before the regatta.
The A boat of Roman Meredith, Zak Jenkins, Sam Pratt and Louis Bolton successfully qualified, no mean feat with such a large entry. They raced a Marlow crew on the Tuesday, and despite an excellent start and good technique, couldn’t match the Marlow crew’s mid race pace.
The B crew of Monty French, Henry Gould, Jacob Len, and Kit Daly, narrowly failed to qualify, though demonstrated how much they had improved over the previous few weeks.
