Champion of the Thames Eights Head 15 May 2022

Champs was really happy to host this event after a 2 year absence. It’s a great chance for College and Town crews to practice their standing starts and sprint racing after all the Autumn Head races. We were blessed with the weather once again and really enjoyed the whole experience of running the event.

We see ourselves as a friendly and inclusive club and hope the event also provides a bit of relief for hard working students building up to exams and May Bumps. Great organisation by the Champs Team and fantastic effort by all.
