Juniors squad tops table at national regatta

HENLEY Rowing Club’s Juniors were victorious in seven events at the National Schools’ Regatta in Nottingham over the weekend.

With silver medals in three further events, Henley confirmed their position as the leading junior club in the country at the head of the medal table.

The regatta is the largest junior rowing event of the season, with clubs and schools from across the UK competing for national honours over three days at the National Watersports Centre in Nottingham.

Henley’s success story started in the 1,000m events on Friday, where the J14 coxed quad of Will Properjohn, Cameron Jones, Nick Spicer and Jack Broadbent with cox Lachlan Reid competed for the Canterbury Cup.

Qualifying third in the time trial, they then went on to win their semi-final and meet five other crews in the afternoon final. During a hard-fought race over the junior course, the Henley boys took a silver medal.
