Henley Royal Regatta
The Buckeyes have progressed to the Henley Royal Regatta that has taken place annually since 1839. The varsity eight and coxless four will both be racing in the first round of their respective events on Friday (June 30).
The varsity eight is competing in the Remenham Challenge Cup against seven other fierce boats. The V8 will face off against the Leander Club on Friday with hopes of advancing.
The coxless four qualified for the Women’s Four bracket via a time trail last Friday (June 23). The V4 will be taking on a foursome from the New York Athletic Club on Friday as well.
The lineups for both boats will be the same as they were at the Henley Women’s Regatta (listed below). Race times are listed at the links below and fans will be able to watch all races live streamed.
