Women's Eights Head of the River Race

posted by Roy Sinclair - 8 Mar 2009

On Saturday 7th March, seven crews from Scotland took part in the Women's Eights Head of the River Race on the Tideway in London. Raced on the River Thames from Mortlake to Putney in warm conditions with a slight wind which stiffened during the race, this was the largest field for the women's head ever with 291 crews racing over the 4 1/4 mile course.

Imogen Walsh from Inverness was in the stroke seat of the fastest Scottish crew which was the composite Clyde RC/Edinburgh University BC/Glasgow RC/Glasgow University BC crew, who covered the course in 19 minutes 28.24 seconds and finished in an outstanding 6th place from a start position of 200. The highest placed single club crew was Clydesdale ARC who finished in 33rd place and 5th of the Senior 3 crews. Almost holding their start position of 65, Edinburgh University BC (A) finished 68th, and won the Senior 4 pennant.
