Saturday 21st March – Kingston Head of the River

Congratulations to our Masters E4+ crew of Stephen Haighton, Glyn Hawkins, Tim Hayter, Simon Beard and Jen Clements for winning their class and also being the second fastest Coxed Four of the day! The strong northerly head wind created very choppy conditions and made the 5,200m course a real challenge, especially for those more used to the Avon,  but our crew showed the locals a thing or two beating the Kingston RC MasE 4+ by 35 secs on their own water. The crew also beat all the other Masters crews, all the senior 4+ crews with the exception of Worcester Uni IM2 4+ (although the second placed IM2 4+ were beaten by 1min 17 secs) and many IM3 8+s. The event saw Leander score a 1, 2, 3 with the first boat crewed by many internationals including Matt Gotterall, who learned to row at Stratford.
