SUNDAY 7 JULY – FINALS

11.50am Fawley Challenge Cup – WON
Leander Club ‘A’ beat Henley RC ‘A’ by 1 1/4 lengths

Having come second to Henley RC at the recent National Schools Championships, this race promised to be an exciting one, and it did not fail to deliver. A very clean start from both crews, was followed by a slight steering correction from Henley, an opportunity that the Leander crew seized and moved a canvas up. A confident rhythm took them further out, to a length by the Barrier. A push from the local rivals came in the third quarter, closing the gap to 3/4 length. However, a replay of the National Schools result was not to be, and Leander responded to the challenge by sharpening and pushing away from the Henley crew, finishing a full length and a quarter ahead. A fantastic result for coach James Loveday and the crew, for whom a promising future in rowing surely lies ahead.

12.00pm Remenham Challenge Cup
Waiariki RC, NZL beat Leander Club & Imperial College by 1 2/3 lengths

The British senior crew came to this race with the upper hand, having beaten the New Zealand crew at the recent world cup in Poznan. However, since that race, the Kiwi line-up had been strengthened by bringing in their world championship pair, a move which today proved to have been a successful one. Crews were level to the quarter mile, but the long, powerful rhythm of the New Zealand crew saw them take a 3foot lead over the Brits through the Barrier. Maintaining both high rate and length throughout the middle of the race, the Kiwis moved away from the Leander and Imperial composite, and a big move between the 3/4 mile and mile and the 1/8 gave them clear water, and shut the door on any attempts by the British crew to come back. No doubt this result will fire up the British girls going forward to the next world cup and beyond.

12.10pm Visitors Challenge Cup – WON
Cambridge University & Leander Club beat A.S.R.Nereus & D.S.R.Laga, NED easily (over 7 lengths)

A slightly higher rate from the Dutch crew off the start made little impact on the Cambridge and Leander crew, who were edging away through the quarter mile, and had over a length lead by the Barrier. Still pushing at r37 through Fawley (and equaling the Fawley record as they went), the Brits looked dynamic and light, taking inch after inch. By Upper Thames, the gap appeared insurmountable and the the British composite could enjoy their moment, rowing confidently to take the win with an Easily verdict.

12.50pm Doubles Sculls Challenge Cup – WON
J.E.Collins & G.E.Thomas (Agecroft) beat J.W.Storey & C.E.Harris, NZL by 1 length

A beautiful start by Collins and Thomas gave them a length at the Barrier, but there was little change after this marker. The Kiwi crew through everything they had at Leander down the course, with rates rarely dropping below 37, showing the ferocity of the races and intensity of the both crews determination to win. In the closing stages of the race both crews were up in the mid-40s on their rates, with the support from the enclosures willing the home crew across the line.

3.10pm Stewards Challenge Cup – WON
Leander Club & Oxford Brookes Univ. beat Leander Club by 2 1/2 lengths

Two strong GB crews met each other in this final of the Stewards. After some seat racing earlier in the week, there were some crew changes in the all-Leander crew, but both have been training together for a few weeks. Racing your teammates at Henley Royal Regatta is always hard, with Leander and Oxford Brookes (represented by Sholto Carnegie, Ollie Cook and Matt Rossiter) moving off the start powerfully to a 2 length lead by the Fawley marker. Some erratic steering from the Leander crew and a crab early in the race meant they were unable to get back onto terms, crossing the line 2 1/2 lengths behind their opposition.

3.30pm Grand Challenge Cup
Waiariki RC, NZL beat Leander Club & Oxford Brookes Univ. by 1 length

The GB men’s eight, represented by Tom Ford, Tom George, Jacob Dawson and Ollie Wynne Griffiths for Leander, came up against a strong Kiwi crew, containing Mahe Drysdale, in the final of the Grand. This was a very close hard-fought battle to the barrier, with the British crew initially in the lead and both crews surging their bows alongside each other. The Kiwi crew then managed to pull out to a slight 1/2 length lead, which they consolidated going past Remenham and extended to 1 length. This distance was held through to the end of the race.

3.50pm Queen Mother Challenge Cup – WON
Leander Club beat Frankfurter R.G., GER by Easily (over 7 lengths)

A dominating performance from this Great British squad crew saw them take a strong early lead. By the Barrier they were 3 lengths ahead, and were always in control of the race. The German crew nudged the booms early on, although this did not affect the outcome of the race and the Leander British crew crossed the line a good distance ahead, with the verdict of the race being ‘Easily’.

SATURDAY 6 JULY – SEMI-FINALS

11.00am Remenham Challenge Cup – WON
Leander Club and Imperial College beat University of London & Molesey BC by 2/3 of a length

Leander were actually here represented in both boats – in the GB development crew on the Berkshire station, and in the GB senior crew on the Buckinghamshire station. The race turned out to be closer than perhaps some would have predicted. Staying fairly level off the start, the GB seniors took a slight move towards their opposition’s water coming down the island, a move which was mirrored by their opponents a few hundred meters later. No clashing occurred in either instance however, and the crews stayed close – a canvas lead to the seniors until the quarter mile. Through Fawley a half length lead grew to three quarters, a margin that remained unchanged for most of the rest of the race, despite attempts by both crews to either lengthen or close the gap. Certainly a promising sign for the future of GB sweep rowing that they held their senior crew to such a margin.

11.50am Silver Goblets and Nickalls Challenge Cup
M.C.Oyen & M.Steeman, NED beat A.M.Ball & T.D.Ballenger by 3 1/2 lengths

This was always going to be a tough ask for the Leander crew, facing the international crew from the Netherlands. The Dutch, rating marginally higher off the start, moved away from the home crew along the island, and by the quarter mile had three and a quarter length lead. Thereafter, Oyen and Steenman dropped their rate and controlled the race comfortably down the rest of the course. Ballinger and Ball kept good form, but unfortunately were no match for the internationals on this occasion.

12.00pm Ladies Challenge Plate
Oxford Brookes University ‘A’ beat Newcastle Univ. & Cambridge Univ. by 1 length

Those expecting a highly competitive race were not disappointed here in this match between Brookes, the leading UK domestic crew, and the GB U23 crew. The composite edged a very slight lead out of the island, but Brookes came back strongly as they settled into their rhythm, and in fact equalled the Barrier record despite not particularly fast conditions. By Fawley, the Brookes crew looked like they might just break contact, but the U23s were not to let them away easily. A push from them took them back to a few feet of overlap, but the response from Brookes shut this challenge down, and they went on to win by one length.

12.10pm Princess Grace Challenge Cup
Hollandia Roeiclub, NED beat Cambridge Univ. Women’s BC & Reading RC by 1 foot

This was an incredibly close fought race by two very neat and highly spirited crews. The Dutch crew pulled out to a 1 length lead at the Barrier and set a new record for this event to this marker. This showed the speed and calibre of the starts the crews had made along the island. They looked set to hold this lead as they progressed down the course, but the composite crew, represented by Jess Leyden from Leander, did not let them go. They started to close in on the Dutch after the 3/4 mile, reducing their lead to 1/2 a length by the mile marker. Into the enclosures, Leander was surging up on the Dutch crew, and it was neck and neck to the finish line. The Dutch took the win by only 1 foot. There is no doubt the GB composite crew will come back fighting in Poznan at the World Cup next week.

2.30pm Ladies Challenge Plate
Hollandia Roeiclub, NED beat Leander Club by 1/2 a length

A day of records. This crews were level to the 1/2 mile marker where the Dutch crew moved out to a small 1/4 length lead by the Barrier. Leander fought hard and held their rating high down the course, and the largest lead the Dutch managed to extend to was 1/2 a length. The Fawley record was equalled by the Dutch in a time of 2.54, giving some indication of the speed and quality of these two crews. Down the enclosures, Leander took the rating up to 43 and attacked, but were unable to close down the distance. Hollandia Roeiclub took the win by 1/2 a length, achieving a new course record in the process of 5.57. A very impressive showing from two talented crews.

3.20pm Diamonds Challenge Sculls
O.Zeidler, GER beat H.D.Leask by 1 1/2 lengths

Both scullers had very strong starts with Leask taking a small lead by the end of the island, showcasing how fast and efficient he can be off the blocks. By the 1/4 mile, Zeidler had powered through to lead by 2/3 of a length, which he capitalised on down the course and extended out to 2 1/2 lengths by the Mile marker. Leask took his rate up towards the finish to close the distance but was unable to get back on terms with Zeidler, who crossed the line 1 1/2 lengths ahead. A strong showing against a European Championship gold medallist from Leask, who has only just come back from injury.

3.40pm Fawley Challenge Cup
Leander Club ‘A’ beat Leander Club ‘B’ by 5 lengths

After a delayed start due to a boat getting stuck on the course and having to be towed out of the way, this all-Leander race could get started. It is unfortunate that thee two crews had to meet today instead of for the finals, as the Leander ‘B’ crew would always be up against it to match their ‘A’ boat. The ‘A’ crew had a faster start and commanded the race from the start, pulling out to cross the line 5 lengths ahead of the ‘B’ crew.

3.50pm Visitors Challenge Cup – WON
Cambridge University & Leander Club beat University College Dublin, IRL by 1 3/4 lengths

This strong composite crew, with Charlie Elwes representing Leander, stormed off the start and had a good lead by the 1/4 mile marker. They continued to increase this along the course, equalling the record at the barrier. For the remainder of the race, they had good control and settled into a strong and effective rhythm. An impressive row from a crew with little time training together, which hopefully can be translated into a similar win in tomorrow’s finals.

6.40pm Town Challenge Cup
Chinese National Rowing Team, CHN beat Leander Club by 2 2/3 of a length

This was always going to be a tough race for a Leander Club crew, made up of club athletes, coming up against a strong crew that is comprised of members of the National Team from China. The Chinese crew puled away to an early lead, equally the record to the Barrier, and remained in control of the race throughout, reducing their rate from the 1/2 mile marker. They crossed the line 2 3/4 lengths ahead of the Leander crew.

7.10pm Double Sculls Challenge Cup – WON
J.E.Collins & G.E.Thomas beat Hayda & Formoso-Murias, USA by 1 length

Bursting off the blocks, Collins and Thomas jumped out to a 3 length lead by the 1/4 mile. They equalled the 2017 record in this event to the Barrier, despite minimal wind. They then settled into a strong rhythm that allowed them to hold their lead down the course and remain in control of the race, pulling out to over 7 lengths by the 3/4 mile and reducing their rate into the closing stages.

FRIDAY 5 JULY

A number of events began today on quarter-final day, adding to the crews from Leander who won their rounds yesterday.

9.20am Stonor Challenge Cup
C.Baer & J.Richter beat B.R.Bryan & K.J.Maitland by 4 1/2 lengths

Leander on the Buckinghamshire station got off to a good start, and stayed in touch with their opposition alongside the island. However, the German boat, both of whom were 2012 Olympic silver medallists, and Baer an Olympic champion in Rio in the quad, was always going to be tough opposition for the new Leander combination. By the Barrier the German crew had taken clear water, and eased away over the rest of the course. The Leander crew maintained their technique and composure however, and crossed the line in good order. It is a pleasure to see Bryan, a former GB Team member who has had to take time out for illness, back on the water, and having found a strong crewmate in Maitland.

10.00am Ladies Challenge Plate – WON
Newcastle Univ. & Cambridge Univ beat Frankfurter R.G., GER by 1 2/3 of a length

Leander is represented in this crew by Lenny Jenkins and Harvey Kay. After both crews received warnings for being late to the stakeboat, a clean and straight start saw the British U23 composite crew show their strength by taking half length lead over the German crew by the end of the island, and two lengths  by the barrier. The German crew did not seem to put up much of a fight, and a very composed and dynamic British crew eased well ahead. They allowed the margin to close back to 1 2/3 lengths after dropping the rate significantly (23 to their opponent’s 39). This performance hopefully nods to a strong result at the Word U23 Championships in a few weeks time.

10.40am Princess Grace Challenge Cup – WON
Cambridge Univ Womens B.C & Reading beat RC A.S.R.Nereus & K.S.R.Njord, NED by 2 1/4 lengths

The Dutch on the Buckinghamshire station and the British composite crew on the Berkshire station were level pegging to the quarter mile mark. But the composite crew, represented by Jess Leyden for Leander, had taken a clear lead by Fawley. The composite, looking relaxed, were unchallengedby their Dutch opposition, and eased back on the rate after the mile and the eighth. This British line-up, which was fifth at the European Championships, should take confidence from this performance, not only going forward in this competition, but onwards to the forthcoming Rotterdam World Cup, just next weekend.

11.30am Remenham Challenge Cup – WON
Leander Club & Imperial College beat Oxford Brookes University by 1 length

This is the British eight that will be representing GB at the World Cup 3 in Poznan next week. Kicking off their Henley campaign strongly with a good win, this crew will certainly be one of the favourites in this event. Both crews got off to a strong start with Leander and Imperial taking a small lead at the end of the island. They had extended this out to 3 lengths by Remenham, where they took the rate down and controlled the race to win by 1 length.

12.15pm Remenham Challenge Cup
University of London & Molesey BC beat R.S.V.U.Okeanos & Rv. Willem III by 1 1/4 lengths

This is a GB development 8, made up of a number of different clubs but with strong Leander representation among a third of the crew, with Susie Dear and Natasha Harris White sitting in the bows and Morgan Baynham-Williams coxing the crew. Both crews went off the start fast with the Dutch crew overrating the Brits. At this lower and more controlled rating, the composite crew managed to pull away over the course to 3 lengths at the mile marker. Bringing their rate down in the closing stages of the race, they crossed the line 1 3/4 lengths ahead.

2.20pm Diamonds Challenge Sculls – WON
H.D.Leask beat M.Goretty, ITA by 2 lengths

Both scullers started well, but Leask managed to jump out to a 1 length lead by the first marker post. This allowed him to control the race and respond throughout to Goretty’s pushes. He was able to hold out this lead and extend it into the closing stages of the race to 2 lengths across the line. He took his rate down in the final stages, which is likely to save some energy going into the semi-finals tomorrow.

2.35pm Princess Grace Challenge Cup
Chinese Rowing National Team beat Leander Club by over 5 lengths

The Chinese National Team managed to take an early advantage in the race and by the 1/4 mile marker had a 1 length lead over Leander. They capitalised on this when Leander caught a crab close to the barrier, and as Leander recovered and restarted rowing. They rejoined the race in a spirited fashion and pushed back along the course, but were unable to close the gap and the Chinese crew crossed the line a comfortable distance ahead.

2.45pm Silver Goblets and Nickalls Challenge Cup – WON
A.M.Ball & T.D.Ballenger beat P.E.Poynter & T.F.Burton by over 5 lengths

A strong start from the Leander pair found them take a good lead by the first marker. They steadily increased this all the way along the course, reducing their rate from Fawley onwards to cross the line over 5 lengths ahead of their opposition.

3.35pm Ladies Challenge Plate – WON
Leander Club beat East India Club & Gent, BEL by 1 3/4 of a length

A commanding race by the Leander crew saw them 5 lengths ahead by the Fawley marker. The composite opposing crew managed to close the distance in the second half of the course, but only by holding a far higher rate than the strong Leander crew, who reduced their rate coming towards the line. Leander Club crossed the line 1 3/4 lengths ahead of East India Club.

4.05pm Doubles Sculls Challenge Cup – WON 
N.Hull (Belfast) & O.J.Dix J.E.Collins & G.E.Thomas (Agecroft) by 1 length

With Leander rowers on both sides of the course in this event, there was always going to be one loser and one winner. Collins and Thomas are the selected double for the GB rowing team in Poznan next week, so are a strong and capable crew.  With a dynamic start they pulled out to a lead which they maintained down the course, pushing out to 4 1/2 lengths by the Fawley marker. Dix and Hull pushed back at this point and closed the distance by half a length, but unfortunately were unable to overcome the distance in between themselves and the leading crew. Collins and Thomas brought their rate down towards the end of the race and won by 1 length.

6.10pm Prince of Wales Challenge Cup
A.A.S.R.Skoll & A.U.S.R Orca, NED beat Leander Club by 1/3 of a length

This was a close fought race. Leander led most of the way and it was looking good for the club crew. Down the course there were some steering warnings issued to both crews. Some erratic steering from the Dutch crew saw them move close to Leander near the mile marker, which caused Leander to catch a crab. This set the door for a sprint finish which was so tight all the way to the line, resulting in a 1/3 of a length victory to the Dutch crew.

6.35pm Fawley Challenge Cup – WON
Leander Club ‘A’ beat The Tideway Scullers School ‘C’ by 1 1/2 lengths

A sharp and crisp start from Leander saw them take an early advantage in the opening stages of the race. They built this lead up to 4 lengths by Fawley. Despite Tideway Scullers best efforts, they were unable to close the gap to the strong junior crew, and Leander remained in control throughout the closing stages to win by 1 1/2 lengths.

6.40pm Visitors Challenge Cup – WON
Cambridge Univ and Leander Club beat Oxford University by 2 1/2 lengths

This composite crew from Leander and Cambridge looked composed and relaxed throughout this race, and despite successive pushes from Oxford down the course they were unable to challenge the leaders. Leander pulled out to a 3 length lead by the mile marker, and brought the rate down slightly to cross the line ahead.

6.45pm Town Challenge Cup – WON
Leander Club Molesey BC by 1 2/3 of a length

Leander took an early lead of one length, but were unable to shake the determined and spirited Molesey crew. Molesey made several attempts to get back on terms but due to some steering issues were unable to draw back level. The closed the gap to 2/3 of a length by coming through Remenham but Leander managed to hold them off down the enclosures and win their quarter final.

7.20pm Fawley Challenge Cup – WON
Leander Club ‘B’ beat Lea RC by 1/2 a length

An excellent race between two well matched crews. Though Lea took an early lead and were ahead of Leander by a canvas to the Barrier, they faltered at the 1/2 mile marker and Leander took advantage to come through them. They held this lead over the rest of the course though it was a tight finish with both crews upping their rate to the line.

THURSDAY 4 JULY

Leander’s crews started racing in earnest today. Here are the results, listed chronologically:

9.20am Diamonds Challenge Sculls – WON
H.D.Leask beat M.Fraenkel, GER by 3 1/4 lengths

In near perfect conditions, both scullers got off to a strong, clean start, and were level at the quarter mile. Fraenkel on the Berks station, rating around three pips higher than Leask, had a third of a length lead by the barrier, but by Fawley Leask had turned the tables and started to edge ahead. The race remained close until the 3/4 mile, when Leask eased away. He continued to row in confident style – long and strong, with patient placement at the catch and accelerated hip drive. A pupil of the Leander development program, Leask has had some injuries this season, so it is encouraging to see him competing so strongly. He took the win by 3 1/4 lengths.

9.35am Visitors Challenge Cup – WON
Cambridge University and Leander Club beat Thames R.C by 1 1/4 lengths

In the first of three Visitor’s Leander appearances, the composite crew rated slightly lower but longer than their opposition, took a slight lead right from the off. Despite the Thames crew being of significant pedigree – comprising three Thames Cup winners and one Visitors winner, they were led by 3/4 of a length by the end of the island by the Leander composite, a margin which grew to six lengths by the 3/4 mile maker. Already rating some six pips lower than their opposition, the Leander composite further dropped their rate and comfortably led the rest of the course, crossed this line rating 25, to their oppositions 40. The final winning margin of 1 and 1/4 lengths belies the strength and speed with which this Leander composite has nodded towards.

10.45am Visitors Challenge Cup
University College, Dublin, IRL beat Leander Club by 2 1/4 lengths

While both crews were fairly even off the start, some early steering adjustments and slightly lower rate from the Leander crew meant they were led by 2 foot at the 1/4 mile. A number of warnings for steering ensued to the Leander crew, and the confident looking UCD crew extended their margin to three lengths by the mile post. The Irish line up, stroked by the reigning U23 lightweight pair world champions, dropped their rate only once thought the mile and the eighth, and crossed the line 2 1/4 lengths ahead of their Leander opposition. A hard fought race for the home crew, who will no doubt come back stronger from the experience.

11.10am Visitors Challenge Cup
Dusseldorf & Crefeld, GER beat Thames R.C & Leander Club by 1/3 of a length

This was a close race all the way to Fawley. The German crew managed to get the jump on this Leander composite crew off the start, extending out to a 3 foot lead by the 1/4 mile marker. Leander clawed back in this first stretch and the margin was only 1 foot coming through the Barrier, before the Germans started to eke out their lead to a 1 length by the 3/4 mile marker. This was held all the way down the course with Leander holding composure well and constantly challenging the leaders, and managing to close the margin down to cross the line only 1/3 of a length behind the Germans.

11.40am Prince of Wales Challenge Cup
Leander Club beat University of London & Edinburgh University by 1 1/4 lengths

Leander’s crew contains a previous winner in this event in Seb Devereux and Sam McKeown who won gold at the World University Championships last summer. The strong boat dominated this race from a hard and fast start, pulling out to 1 1/2 lengths by the 1/4 mile marker. By Fawley, this had been increased to 3 lengths and looked composed and strong into the line. University of London and Edinburgh raced well all the way to the line, closing the margin down to 1 1/4 lengths, but Leander had good control throughout the race.

3.20pm Diamonds Challenge Sculls
K.Borch, NOR beat S.G.Innes by 2 1/4 lengths

Borsch has been representing Norway at the Rowing World Cup races this year, most recently in Poznan where he made the A Final. Innes has been on a recovery program for most of this year, only recently stepping back into full training, so this was always going to be a tough race. Off the start Borsch took a lead and managed to hold this through to the Barrier, where he sat 1 1/2 lengths up on Innes. Though Innes rowed determinedly, he was unable to overcome this early deficit, which was stretched out to 3 lengths at the Fawley mark. Innes closed this margin into the final stages of the race. This experience will undoubtedly spur Innes on to make a full recovery and give him confidence going into training and racing next year.

4.05pm Double Sculls Challenge Cup – WON
N.Hull & O.J.Dix beat M.S.Cummings & Z.Youell by 3 1/3 lengths

This composite crew of Leander represented by Dix and Queens University Belfast looked strong and comfortable in their opening round of the regatta. Pulling away to an early one length lead by the 1/4 mile, they pmanaged to extend this out to 3 1/2 lengths at the Fawley marker. The reduced their rate into the closing stages of the race, comfortably crossing the line 3 1/3 lengths ahead of their opposition.

6.15pm Fawley Challenge Cup – WON
Leander Club ‘B’ beat St. Peter’s College, NZL by 3/4 of a length

The first of Leander’s entries to race in the Fawley was the B crew, who had performed well in the run up to the regatta and earned a seeded place. This was a very close race by two very neat and spirited quads. Leander took a slight lead off the start and managed to hold this down the course, despite strong challenges from St. Peter’s College throughout. There was only a canvas in it coming into the Fawley marker, which Leander managed to eke out to a 3/4 length coming through Remenham. They held onto this slight advantage to cross the line the same distance ahead.

7.35pm Fawley Challenge Cup – WON
Leander Club ‘A’ beat The Tideway Scullers’ School ‘A’ by 3 1/2 lengths.

A dominating performance from a strong Leander crew, who have shown consistently across the year that they are highly competitive. They commanded the race from the start, pulling out to 1 1/4 lengths at the 1/4 mile and out to 5 lengths further down the course. From here they reduced their rate and crossed the line 3 1/2 lengths ahead of Tideway Scullers School.
