Moved really well in the first half of the race, fast and smooth, and closed in a little on Edinburgh. The wind which picked up at Fawley disrupted the timing in the second half, but overall we were pretty pleased with the row and qualified comfortably. (JPD)
1st round
Lost to Glasgow University by 1.5 lengths
Glasgow were a selected crew, but their pre-Henley form was varied so we thought we might have a chance if we put in our best performance. The boys red-lined it down the course but Glasgow were pretty slick and more powerful and drew out to a length and a half. They didn't drop below 32 but looked to have a length or two in reserve.

Glasgow beat Edinburgh easily in the next round, then went out to event winners Newcastle by 3 1/4 lengths on Saturday. (JPD)
