We are pleased to announce that this weekend a record number of Vesta crews pulling on the Crimson and Black at the Fours Head. In total 15 crews will be racing this Saturday, 3rd November, the largest senior entry of any club by some way. We will also have 3 full Vesta crews and a further 2 composites racing the Vets Fours Head on Sunday.
When a Vesta member puts on our ‘jersey’ and goes out to race they do so representing, in order of importance; themselves, their crew, their squad and their Club. They are part of a vitally important whole that stretches back many generations. A whole that includes everyone from Olympic and European Champions, through Henley winners, to people have have won their novice pot. No matter how great or humble their previous success, all of our members share one thing in common; the sense of pride and community associated with putting on the Vesta all-in-one.
It is with great pride that we will have so many members new and old racing. This is a fantastic testament to our progress in recent years. The 8 Women’s and 7 Men’s crews are racing across all categories, in Quads, Coxless and Coxed Fours. Our first Vesta crew down the course will be the Women’s Championship Coxless Fours at 123. Our final Vesta crew will be one of the Men’s Intermediate Coxed Fours going off 477 out of 483.
