After prequalifying for the Thames, the boys were well rested for their first race against local rivals, Molesey. Winners of the event last year, the pressure was well and truly on, but Kingston were ready. After a fast start, the Kingston crew took about a canvas at the end of the island, and with Adele Hing driving them on, the crew started to make use of their advantage, and open the gap. Coming past Remenham, we had opened up a lead of around 3/4 of a length, and from there, Kingston opened up their lead a little more through to the finish. Kingston won over Molesey B.C. by 1 length.
