Two Months In...

It's been a while since our last update, I completely forgot to get a January update done. Sorry about that.

It's been a busy start of the year, despite the cancellation of Weybridge Head due to snow. Roehampton crews entering both Quintin Head on our home turf, the Thames Tideway, and the BUCS 4s & 8S Head in Boston. Results have improved greatly, with the men's eight coming 16th of 25 in Quintin, and only 20 seconds slower than Kingston! and the women's eight placing 24th of 28 boats. The results were less impressive at BUCS and I can't find them at the moment (they appear to have been taken down from their site) but the good news is no boat placed last.

Coming up in March we have Women's Head of the River on the 9th, Men's Hammersmith Head on the 10th, and Men's Head of the River on the 23rd. Please come down, braving the weather, to support us, it really helps when you're in the boat!

I'll post some photos of our recent races and antics, including the images that graced the RSU Naked Calendar, and try and track down the BUCS results before next month's update.
