Seven crews from Abingdon travelled to West London for the annual Hampton Junior Head. Having just had two weeks back on the water, all the crews attacked the racing with full commitment. The highlight of the day was a win for the J16 A VIII in a tight race over Eton, King’s London and Hampton. The 1st and 2nd VIII performed well finishing 2nd in their events just ahead of Hampton, their close rivals. The J16 B raced similarly well to finish 2nd in their event. The J15’s showed what strength in depth and potential they have as a group in their matched ABC VIII’s, securing some excellent results in a tight field. The next event is Hammersmith Head at the end of February.
