Henley Women’s Regatta is a highly-prestigious event in the rowing calendar attracting rowers from all over the world including many national rowing teams and athletes.
The Peabody Cup is awarded to the fastest Junior Women’s Eight of the regatta and this year ten crews (including two crews from the USA) will compete in a knockout format over a very busy weekend of racing.
The 2017 draw also includes the Gold and Silver medal-winning Championship Eights from the recent National Schools Regatta as well as two further crews that contested the A final at that same regatta so the competition is of the very highest calibre.
The King’s/Grange crew will race Headington School (Oxford) at 11:52am on Saturday morning and we wish them every success for a great race! You can watch the race on YouTube
