CUBC Races at Henley Women’s Regatta

After strong time trials, CUBC’s crews progressed to their heats in their respective events at Henley Women’s Regatta.

Blue Boat 5 seat Freya Keto dominated her race against Ellington of Imperial College, and progressed to her semi-final on Saturday, where she raced against GB Rowing Olympic Pathway athlete Katie Mole. The race started well, but Mole’s greater experience told and she took the victory over Freya by 2 lengths.

Freya’s next step will be the qualifying races for the Princess Royal Challenge Cup on Friday.

After a strong time trial in the Championship Lightweight Pair, Olivia Alliott and Maddy Jackson progressed straight to their semi final on Saturday, where they drew a strong crew from Harvard Radcliffe. Starting quickly, CUBC were overhauled by the talented American crew, who would progress to win the final in dominating fashion.
