Kingston Rowing Club Men’s Senior 3 crew came a narrow second in the Head of the River Fours on Saturday.
There were 43 crews racing in the Men’s Senior 3 category.
Overall 12 crews from Kingston were entered in different categories racing over a four and a quarter mile course on the River Thames from Chiswick Bridge to Putney Bridge. The Head of the River Fours is one of the world’s largest one-day rowing races and more than 540 crews took part.
Other good results were for the Women’s Senior 2 Quadruple Sculls crew, which came 6th out of 39 crews in their category, and the Women’s Senior 3 Coxed Four crew which came 7th out of 45 crews in their category, as well as the Women’s Junior 16 Quadruple sculls crew, who were racing.
Andy Hall, Captain of Kingston Rowing Club, said: “It was a great day and a shame for the crews that came so close to winning a pennant. We had a big squad racing with 48 people, ranging in age from 15 to 55, which just shows the size of the squad we have developed for the coming season.”
