Upper Thames impress

TWO Upper Thames eights finished in creditable positions at last week’s women’s head of the river race in Putney.

The crew of Katie Pollard, Nikki Brown, Vicky Pickford, Rachel Weager, Natasha Harris White, Emma Windham, Alison Pearson and Jenni Stephenson, coxed by Di Yarrow, rowed the four-and-a-half mile course at a stroke rate of 33 per minute to finish ahead of local rivals Henley by a few seconds.

The veteran eight finished 38 seconds back in 67th place out of 241 crews in the event, an improvement of two places on last year.
