Henley Royal Regatta - Making SURC History
For Henley Royal Regatta this year, we sent a coxed four to compete in the Prince Albert Challenge Cup. The qualifying races were held at Dorney Lake on the Saturday before the start of the regatta. The boys stayed in Sheffield over the summer to continue training.
Crew line up:
Stroke: Harry Shimmin
3: John Gunton
2: Tom Clark
Bow: Harry Bean
Cox: Boo Latham
After a great race in the time trial, the four succeeded in qualifying for the head to head races! The first full SURC crew to race at the regatta since 2000.
They raced on the Wednesday of the regatta against Lady Margaret BC, Cambridge. Unfortunately falling short of gaining a race in the next round, but happy with their Henley campaign and achieving the goal of qualifying.

We hope for more success next year, and that this will be the start of a continued Sheffield presence at Henley!
