Champs women head for the Thames

Last Saturday Champs added two Women’s 8s to Cambridge 99’s trailer (thanks to 9’s) to the Women’s Head of the River Race on The Thames. It was such a joy, after a long absence, to race on The Thames again and W1 and W2 had a great day out. A chance to test our rowing skills off Cam after a 2 year hiatus.

As ever with The Thames we experienced the full range of conditions which included some welcome sunshine and some very big waves which reminded us how protected we are from the elements on the Cam! Despite the conditions there was some successful overtaking whilst the waves crashed against the boats – all part of the experience.

It was just a great day out and fantastic to be part of such an iconic women’s sporting event again.
