The 2018 Henley Royal Regatta was a very proud one for Marlow, with MRC competing in two events on Finals day.

We all watched our Junior Girls Squad put up a thrilling campaign for the Diamond Jubilee Challenge Cup. Our girls quad of Charlotte Fennell, Izzie Bird, Daisy Bellamy and Tasha Strudwick kept cool heads and rowed with great maturity as they delivered fantastic performances against Tideway Scullers School, Sydney Australia and Headington School.

On finals day the girls walked out of the boat tents to a huge roar from many of our Marlow supporters. Members from all squads turned out to support our girls and show their pride. It was a very inspiring and emotional moment!

Unfortunately a very talented American quad meant we couldn’t bring the trophy home this time, but the girls performance will show younger members of the squad what they can achieve with hard work and determination.

Later in the day, one of our previous junior squad members and junior captain Heidi Long won her pairs event (the Hambleden Pairs Challenge Cup) in a thrilling final. Well done Heidi!!
