The Henley campaign for 2018 began with a bang. Trinity successfully qualified our Senior 8+ in the Temple Challenge Cup, off the back of some tight racing at Marlow International Regatta. Many thanks to Eton College for being gracious hosts and training partners.

The Senior 8+ raced in the first round of the Temple Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta on Wednesday the 4th against University of London ‘B’. Our 8+ successfully negotiated the opening round of the Temple with a victory over UL. This set up a showdown with Syracuse University on the Thursday. Unfortunately the 8+ was defeated in the second round by the powerful Syracuse crew.

The crew returned immediately to Dublin as the focus turned to the Irish National Championships.
