We had a fantastic weekend of results to celebrate at Henley Masters Regatta 2022. The event, which is typically staged the week after Henley Royal Regatta finishes, was established in 1994 and is hosted and run by Upper Thames Rowing Club. Crews racing in WinTech & King Racing shells delivered six wins, including three from crews from the USA who had traveled over to compete. After the slightly underwhelming weather a week earlier, this regatta was blessed with blistering heat and calm conditions as the iconic Henley course came alive in the summer sunshine.
Our first win of the Saturday afternoon session – which is typically reserved for finals – came in the Open Masters B Double Sculls; a Derby-Burton composite came away with the victory.
Open Masters E Double Sculls win also went to a WinTech crew, as Grosvenor Rowing Club from Chester secured the win by a length over a Chateau-Gontier-Manosque Composite.
Our third win came about half an hour later in the Women’s Masters D Eights final, as Marin Rowing Association of the USA who were racing in a King 8+ beat Broxbourne Rowing Club by ¾ of a length.
This marked one of Marin’s six wins across the event in a hugely successful weekend for the club from California. They secured another one of those in a WinTech shell, as they claimed the Women’s Masters E Coxed Fours over Worcester Rowing Club by half a length.
Our fifth win came in Race Open Masters D Coxless Fours as Monmouth Rowing Club beat Bewl Bridge Rowing Club by two lengths.
Our final win of the afternoon saw Chinook Performance Racing, USA take Women’s Masters G Eights by four lengths in the last race of the day racing in a King SE 8+ over a Walbrook-Weybridge Composite.
Crews racing in WinTech & King Racing shells featured in 12 finals overall with a 50%-win rate. We thoroughly enjoyed attending this fantastic regatta and meeting so many athletes, clubs and spectators. This event marks the typical end of the Henley racing series and we’re already very much looking forward to returning to this course in 2023.
