HENLEY Rowing Club’s juniors recorded 12 wins at the Bedford Spring Head on Sunday.
Racing in one of the last head races of the season, the junior men’s and women’s squads travelled north to compete in 17 events across a range of boats and age groups.
The first win of the day came from the women’s IM3 coxed four of Alexis Perkins, Emily Pimlott, Kryssie Steiger, Kiera Buckley and cox Emma Lister.
Racing the 2km course down the Great Ouse which flows through the centre of Bedford, the crew were supported by a contingent of parents who stood on the various bridges spanning the river. Winning in a time of seven minutes and 25 seconds, the crew beat 12 other boats in their event to start a cascade of wins for the Henley club.
The junior boys scored a brace of wins in their events. The J15 coxed quad of Sebastian Meyer-O’Kane, Simranjit Sandhu, Thomas Frost, Charlie Rollet-Manus and cox Jack Bond raced against two boats from Bedford School to command their event and win in a time of six minutes, 53 seconds.
