Gold at Henley Women's Regatta

Henley Rowing Club had five crews race at Henley Women’s Regatta. Four of the crews progressed from the time trial to the side by side knockout racing, the Junior 4X Fran Reeves, Jess Mack, Tilly Mackenzie Smith and Leah Reddy being the crew not to qualify.

The J16 coxed four Lucy Green, Jemima Painter, Lilian Graham, Martha Dickson and cox Elise Pindoria lost their first round race by just a length to St Paul’s Girls School. The Junior Coxed four Sophie Eltze, Nicolette Pagdin, Freya Smith, Sophia Spanswick cox Matilda Ley, progressed to the semi finals beating Bedford Girls in the first round and a Tideway Scullers composite in the quarter finals. The semi final saw them lose to eventual winners Aberdeen Schools.

The Junior Eight Gwennie Hunter, Chloe Hughes, Lilya Wild, Abi Smith, Emily Simmons, Tabby Hall, Freya Weiser, Emma Eltze and cox Ella Dickson, had a comfortable win over Sir William Perkins in their first round race but lost to losing finalist Hinksey Sculling School in the quarter final.

In J16 quads Evie Meeks, Charlotte Tong, Jemima Butterworth and Molly Hall, had comfortable wins against an Ardingley/Globe composite first round and then Hereford Cathedral School in the semi.

In the final they faced a fancied AB Severn/ Stratford composite this produced a close race with the Henley girls coming out victorious with a one length verdict.
