HENLEY DRAGONS finished fifth in the first race of this season’s Henley Winter Series on Sunday.
Eleven boats were set off from the Eyot Centre at 30 second intervals and raced down and round Temple Island, back up to Marsh Meadows before turning to finish back at the Eyot Centre.
There was an exciting finish for Henley Dragons who rounded the top island with event winners The Rafters and fought them side by side to the finish line. Overall Henley finished fifth.
The next event will be held on November 16 and will mark the 10th anniversary of the first winter series race.
