Henley – Day Two briefing

The latest news from Henley Royal Regatta, provided by John Wiggins, with results from Day One and the early race on Day Two, plus the briefing for the remainder of the day.

The Teddies eight faced a tidy but far less experienced Kings Canterbury crew on the first round and duly came home comfortably ahead to set up a 2nd round race against KCS Wimbledon. While there was a tailwind blowing, the intermediate times of 1:49 and 3:08 are encouraging. Re-live Teddies first race here.

Casualties in the first round of the PE were old foes, Hampton and Abingdon, Pangbourne and Bedford; while all British seeded crews went through two of the American crews went out to British opposition.

Early this morning, in the second race of the day, the St Edward’s eight put in another composed performance to defeat KCS Wimbledon by 1 3/4 lengths. You can watch this morning’s race here. They will face off with perennial contenders St Paul’s School on Friday, who have posted split times at the Barrier and at Fawley in close proximity to our own; it could be quite the race.

OSE Watch

The Thames Challenge Cup lived up to its name with valiant second places going to Messrs Singfield (Tyne RC), Morgan (Kingston RC) and Floyd (UTRC) though Bea Crossley (Searle) coxed the UTRC A VIII to victory.

The Temple Challenge Cup saw anticipated success for Dave Wilcox and Sam Shuker in the Newcastle VIII and for Max Thompson for Brookes A. Sadly, UL B went out despite the best efforts of Ben Sthamer.

One of the closest races of the day surely had to be that of Charlie Gosling’s Marlow RC winning by a mere 3 feet in the Wyfolds

Also in the Wyfolds, Alex Simmonds’ City of Oxford Crew race again today as do Oscar Nick and Campbell Nelson for St Andrew’s in the PA.

Entering the fray but up against one of the toughest opponents is Stewart Innes in the Diamonds while Miss Greves is quietly confident of progression in the Headington Remenham eight.

We wish them all (hoping I have not missed anyone) well as we do the Henley Royal Regatta computer that has been struggling all day!
