Rowing news this week kicks off with a congratulations to Scarlette R for winning a tankard last weekend at her rowing event.

Two Queen Anne’s quads raced at Henley Women’s regatta, which is the premier women’s regatta in the UK with over 1500 rowers travelling from across the world to compete there.

Alicia’s quad didn’t make it through the time trial but had a very good race. Rachel’s quad made it through the time trials, which is a first for Queen Anne’s. They raced a very talented Tideway Scullers crew and had a good tussle but lost in the heat.

An amazing event to be part of for both quads.

Alicia B, Sophie H, Maya McC, Philippa M, Rachel G, Katie G, Ella H, Charlotte W
