SWPS Boat Club rowed hard at Henley Women's Regatta 2021 with some well-deserved achievements.
SWPS' 1st Quad won their Last 16 race qualifying for the Quarter Final on the Sunday. Mary O’Donnell, Emmie Kirkhope, Maddie Jones and Bethany Illsley kept in contact with competitors Wallingford but were pipped to the post at the last section coming in 1.5 lengths behind. Despite this, this is a fantastic achievement which they should be very proud of.
Our 2nd Quad also performed excellently attaining their best row in their time trial, and our Coxed Four held their own until the last moment, being narrowly defeated in their Last 16.
As this was the last competition some of these crews will be rowing for SWPS in, we watch their bright futures with interest as they depart SWPS and become Perkonians. Will strong rowers coming from SWPS, we know you'll join us in celebrating their successes.
