HENLEY Rowing Club’s junior section led the Thames Upriver region to victory at British Rowing’s Junior Inter-Regional Regatta at the National Watersports Centre in Nottingham at the weekend.
Competing against 11 other regions from across the UK, the Henley contingent claimed six victories as the Thames Upriver region took the boys’ and girls’ cups as well as the overall Victor Ludorum trophy.
Racing over a 1,500-metre course, Henley were representing the region in eight events across three age groups.
The boys’ J16 quad of Charlie Rollet-Manus, Harry Farley, Alexander Meyer-O’Kane and Alasdair Roy were racing against old adversaries Tiffin School from the Thames London region.
With a heat time of five minutes and 13 seconds, Henley were drawn in the first lane in the final where they eased to a 10-second win against second placed East Midlands.
