Record Breakers at Henley Royal Regatta
01 July, 2011
The opening race for our top boat this year saw a tough draw against Norwich School who had won the National Schools' Regatta in May.
Our crew of Michael Tymofijiw, Harry Lyons, Harry Shimmin and Tom Fantham led their race from the first stroke, to win by one length and equal the course record which has stood for nearly twenty years!
As their coach Robin Dowell said "Well we thought we could post a fast time but to be able to equal the fastest ever time over the course on our first day of competition. Hopefully we can go from strength to strength over the next few rounds."
Three of this crew have another year of eligibility in this event so it is certainly an exciting prospect for the rest of the regatta and beyond.
