Henley take honours at Wallingford and Marlow
Published 12/05/14



HENLEY Rowing Club’s senior and junior women’s crews took five wins at Wallingford Regatta on Sunday. The following day the juniors won seven events at the Marlow Spring Regatta.

The Wallingford regatta attracted top crews from around the country to compete on the multi-lane 2km Olympic course at Dorney Lake.

The WJ16 coxed four claimed the clubs first victory. Having won their morning heat easily, the boat of Lauren Kay, Georgia Edwards, Maisie Turner, Emma Lister, cox Rebecca Lister won in a time of seven minutes and 53 seconds.

The second success of the day came from the WJ16 quad of Lauren Edwards, Maddie Orr, Ellie Thompson and Hattie Orr. By the 1,000-metre mark, Henley had taken the race and led from the front to win in a commanding time of seven minutes and four seconds.

The WJ18 coxed four of Ciara Buckely, Kryssie Steiger, Alexis Perkins, Emily Pimlott and cox Beth Pasco had won their morning heat easily, and used this momentum to make a strong start against the five other finalists.


Winning in a time of seven minutes and 39 seconds, the boat was eight seconds ahead of the second placed crew from Haberdashers’ School. The WJ15 coxed quad of Ella Morgan, Clare Pearson, Katy Claridge, Florence Wiggins and cox Rebecca Lister were entered in one of the most subscribed events of the regatta. With 18 crews racing across three heats, the Henley girls showed their superior sculling and laid a clear marker to the field with a win of more than 100 metres in their heat. Starting well in the final, the crew repeated this performance, winning in a time of seven minutes and 29 seconds — 28 seconds ahead of the other finalists.

The senior women gained the club’s fifth win of the day in a closely fought race. The elite club coxed four of Lizzie Cottrell, Rachel Alder, Catriona Kay, Jenny Spencer and cox Pasco had won their earlier heat and were racing against crews from Marlow, City of Oxford, Maidenhead, Trent and Wallingford rowing clubs. With a winning time of seven minutes and 46 seconds, the Henley women rowed well in the final 500 metres to keep Marlow in second place by two seconds.

On Bank Holiday Monday the club’s junior section picked up seven wins at the Marlow Spring Regatta.

Due to the poor weather affecting the Marlow regatta fields, the event was rescheduled to the Olympic course at Dorney with racing taking place over a 900-metre course.

Georgia Edwards in a WJ15 single scull won the B event easily, with Lauren Kay finishing a strong second in the A event. This was shortly followed by a win for the WJ15 eight of Iona McNab, Lily Stimpson, Katie Beale, Ella Wandless, Alicia Redman, Clare Pearson, Hannah Gutteridge, Anna Roe and cox Rebecca Lister.

The J14 boys were racing in their first regatta of the season and came away with their first trophy. The crew of Will Properjohn, Cameron Jones, Nick Spicer and Jack Broadbent with cox Lachlan Reid had to fend off two other strong crews to win the J14 coxed quad event.

The WJ14 octuple of Eve Poulter, Caitlin Copland, Tilly Lock, Charlotte Moss, Ruby Brown, Georgina Robinson Ranger, Lottie Orr, Issy Jonsson and Gemma Sarney as cox defeated The Latymer School in the opening round, but lost a pulsating final to Headington School A by the narrowest of margins. The crew then split into two coxed quads with Amelia Fielding Smith replacing Copland and Ellie Crook as second cox. Both crews won through to the final where the coxed quad of Brown, Robinson Ranger, Orr, Issy Jonsson and cox Sarney ran out victors with the other quad in third place behind King’s Chester.

The WJ15 coxed quad of Katy Claridge, Clare Pearson, Ella Morgan, Florence Wiggins, cox Rebecca Lister won against a strong field of crews from Headington School, Marlow and Guildford Rowing Clubs.

The WJ16 quad of Katie Beale, Claridge, Pearson, Roe won in a straight final against Eton Excelsior and Marlow Rowing Club.

The final victory of the day for Henley came from the WJ16 eight of Kay, Stimpson, Florence Wiggins, Maisie Turner, Gutteridge, Georgia Edwards, Morgan, Emma Lister, cox Rebecca Lister.
