Stourport Senior Men At Henley


On the evening of the 22nd June, Stourport Boat Club Senior Mens Crew found out that they are eligible  to qualify to race at Henley this year.

They will therefore be doing a time trial on the famous Henley course on Friday 27th June, when their race will be due to start at 17:15hrs.

Each year Henley Royal Regatta is oversubscribed for the majority of the twenty events, particularly for the Club, Student and Junior events. Typically around 500 crews enter the Regatta and this number needs to be reduced to around 310 for the Draw.

Having completed the course, crews congregate in the boating area where the qualifiers are announced in alphabetical order over the loudspeaker system.

This will be a very tense wait and either elation or dejection will follow.

The lads have put the time and effort in and will hopefully do Stourport Boat Club proud.
