2019 Women's Double Strong Results at Women's Henley Regatta

The Women's U19 2x competed at Women's Henley Regatta this past June, which was a first for the club.  The women raced a time trial on the first day of competition to move on to the head to head brackets.  Results are not posted just whether or not the crew advances, which the girls did taking first overall (results were posted after we returned home).   They were then placed in the lower bracket where they advanced to the finals, with two easily verdicts and one verdict 1/2 length, which landed them in the final.  Tough racing conditions and being in the unfamiliar lane the girls had a hard fought second place finish overall at the regatta.
