This weekend Ellie Davies and Lucy Glover added yet another major and prestigious championship victory to their already impressive CVs. The girls won the Junior Double Sculls at Henley Women’s Regatta. In five rounds of 1500m racing over two days, Ellie and Lucy were untouchable and their 27 competitors knew from the very first row that the eventual outcome had that demoralising sense of inevitability.
Lucy Stanhope was in the Junior Quad Sculls crew that reached the final from a field of 23 boats, only to be narrowly beaten by a strong Glasgow School crew.
This is the first time Warrington Rowing Club has ever had two crews reach the finals at Henley Women’s Regatta.
