Double rowing success for the King’s Fours
Over the first weekend of half term the National Schools Regatta took place in Nottingham.
The top boat, the boys Four of Harry Nichols, Charles John, Angus Forbes, Tommie Trelawny-Vernon coxed by Rosie Fuest, came through the time trial and in their semi raced maturely to come in second behind St Edwards. But confident of the training and having another race in their legs in the final the crew went out a tad faster in the first quarter and in the second half moved through St Edwards to win the event by 3/4 of a length. An excellent race.
The first win at National Schools for King’s for a boy’s crew since 1981.
The crews then went on to compete at the Gravelines International Regatta on Sunday 31st.
The 1st Eight of Sam Wallace, Harry Nichols, Charles John, Angus Forbes, Tommie Trelawny-Vernon, Harry Best-Shaw, Alexander Ardley-Ingram, Galvin Brady and Rosie Fuest coxing raced in the Men’s Eights event coming 3rd to the hosts, Gravelines and then Ostend. The boys also split into two fours to race the coxless Fours events which ended up in a very pleasing 1st (Nichols, John, Forbes and Trelawny-Vernon) and 2nd (Wallace, Best-Shaw, Ardley-Ingram and Brady) for King’s over French opposition.
