Weybridge Winter Head

 

1 February 2018

Last week the school first eight raced at Weybridge Winter Head. After an early start the boys braved the wet and windy conditions to race the 3000meter surrey section of the Thames.

This was the first race that most of the boys had competed in this year having played rugby throughout the Michaelmas term but for Will Doherty it was his first time racing and only his eighth time in a rowing boat. Will¬†along with¬†the crew of Joe Anidjah, Sam Machin, Max Nugent, Tom Bateman, Ed Tritton, Lukas Haitzmann, Louis Kibble and Josh Cooper raced well and put in a strong performance coming third against very fast crews from Winchester College at St George’s College.

The next race is at Hampton on 3rd February where the crew will look to improve on this performance against the majority of the top rowing schools in the country.
