The weather this weekend seems to be the dominant force at Henley Women’s Regatta. High winds and predicted heavy rain have prompted the organisers to rearrange some racing. Notably the number of crews to qualify through time trials was cut and some junior racing has been moved to Sunday time trials. Fortunately the sun has stayed more or less out today!
Vesta’s Dev Squad coxed four crew has not been hindered, thankfully. They defeated Thames convincingly this afternoon and move through to the semi-finals on Sunday. The verdict was Easily in a time of 7:50. Well done crew and coaches!
The timetable for Saturday’s racing has been reworked – I’m slightly confused by the document on the website, but I think it’s telling me this:
10:48 – Elite 8 v Bucknell Uni USA
13:42 – Club 8 v TBC
14:12 – Senior 8 v Holy Cross USA
15:46 – Elite 2- v Molesey
