National Schools’ Regatta
During half term, the 1st Eight King’s rowers raced in the combined Champ and Non Champ Eights event at the National Schools’ Regatta. Their time trial put them in the C Final. Their final was a very close race all round and the crew upped their ranking and improved on their time trial result coming in 4th in their final. At the Schools’ Head in March the crew came 12th in 1st (non Champ) Eights. At National Schools, they have moved up to 7th, which is exceptionally promising for next year.
On the first day of the National Schools’ Regatta, the Shell girls raced in J14 Girls Octuples. There was a big and competitive field with the girls racing 1st crews but not making it through the time trial, but a great experience nonetheless.
