Across the Pond: Bowdoin Rowing Prepares for Henley Royal Regatta Qualifying

At the 162nd Marlow Regatta June 17, both Bowdoin Fours finished fifth in their respective events as they prepare for the Qualifying Races next Friday ahead of the Henley Royal Regatta, which begins June 28.

Other American schools vying for the 16 spots in The Prince Albert Cup at HRR include Boston University, Bucknell, Colgate, Williams, WPI, Tabor Academy, Deerfield Academy, and Kent School.

The event also includes entries from Australia, China, France, Ireland, Netherlands, and Scotland.

“This is a remarkable opportunity for our crews,” said Coach Gil Birney. “Racing at Marlow was held on the Olympic venue at Dorney Park and was inspiring. Both our crews stepped up to the challenge of blistering fast British crews, and gained a new respect for what it takes to compete at the international level.”
