Rich pickings for local clubs at Metropolitan
Published 09/06/14

HENLEY Rowing Club’s senior squad returned from a training camp in Banyoles to compete at the two-day Metropolitan Regatta at Eton Dorney and bring home a brace of wins against stiff competition.

The regatta also provided Upper Thames with a victory, with Rachel Weager and Pippa Birch beating a strong field to bring home gold in the IM1 double sculls.

Genevieve Bailhache-Graham started Henley’s campaign on Saturday, securing a respectable fourth place in the women’s IM2 single sculls after sculling strongly through the latter part of the race.

The men’s elite quad of David Read, Josh Davidson, Tom Wilkinson and Jack Hockley took on Leander and Sir William Borlase’s in their Saturday final and finished in an extremely close third place.

Competing in a new line-up on the Sunday, the Women’s IM1 quad of Rachel Loveridge, Rachel Barnes-Willis, Elizabeth Williams and Victoria Carver cruised through their heat to secure a place in the final.

Racing more seasoned opposition, the girls were pleased to take third place in the final, narrowly being pipped for second place.

The men’s Senior four of Stan Admiraal, Chris Mitchell, Andy Pettican and Richard moody took fourth place in an exciting final that saw crews fighting the length of the course to dominate the race which was won by Imperial.

Genevieve Bailhache-Graham took her single scull again on the Sunday, this time racing in the women’s IM3 category. An exhilarating final saw Gen leave her last push until just before the line where she overtook the sculler from Exeter for the gold medal.

Earlier in the day, the senior women’s four of Amanda Hynes, Rachel Alder, Catriona Kay and Jenny Spencer consolidated a successful season so far with another win, this time in the combined senior IM1 category.

The Henley crew led the race from start, held off several pushes from the University of Durham crew and finished three lengths clear of the field.
