Women's Head of the River

On a cold grey March day, eight intrepid Monmouth Rowing Club women and one brave man set off for Putney for the Women's Head of the River Race 2023. A race of 6.8k from Chiswick to Putney. Weather conditions were fair but bracing with over 320 crews ranging from elite internationals to beginners taking part in the event.

After marshalling opposite University of London, the Masters E crew of Sue S, Gabby M, Dawn B, Liz N, Shelagh S, Maggie H, Ellen R, Bonita B and cox Zach S. set off.

They maintained a strong pace through the race encouraged by Monmouth supporters scattered along the course. After the final push they finished with a fantastic time of 23 minutes 32 seconds in 3rd place in a strong field of 8 Masters E crews, behind Willem 3, from Amsterdam and Walton RC.

Many thanks to Maggie for towing, Tim for his support and coaching and Ewart for welly carrying and team photographer.
