Head of the River and Women’s Head of the River Race Reports

Over the last two weeks, M1, W1 and M2 all raced over the Tideway course (River Thames) over a distance of around 6.5km. Both weekends had wet, windy and choppy conditions. W1 raced at the Women’s Head of the River Race (WEHoRR) on 14th March, getting a time of 23m 36s placing them 176th out of the 300 crews entered which was a great effort.

M1 and M2 both raced at the Head of the River Race (HoRR) on the 26th March with M1 getting a great time of 19m 59s, placing them 183rd and 43rd in their category. M2 approached the race with none of its members ever having rowed on the Tideway and, given the conditions, the aim was to survive so a time of 21m 45s, placing them 305th out of 345 crews and 38th in their category was not bad.
