ROWING: Head's up.

Last weekend saw Stratford's Senior Men's VIII compete in the Head of the River race on the Thames between Mortlake and Putney. The race was broadly accepted as a success, with a finish position of 254th out of 404 British and international boats.

The Stratford eight accelerated off the start line and rapidly passed an experienced St. Neots crew before reaching Barnes Bridge.

During the next two miles Stratford strode to a more comfortable rating and held off all but one following crew.

Then during the final stage between Hammersmith and the finish, the crew again pushed to pass a boat from St. Cuthberts, Durham, before crossing the line with clear water between the two boats. The crew rowed the 4 mile course in 20 minutes and 11 seconds.
