Additional Information

Radley are famed for their Henley spurt and this year looks to be no exception- at Marlow their crew looked as if it had really turned on the engines as they put good distance between themselves and a couple of other good junior crews i.e. St Pauls, KCS Wimbledon and Kings School Chester. Their performance at National Schools was not as sharp as I expected but they look very strong coming into Henley despite a surprise defeat to Pangbourne College at Reading Regatta. They raced a 5:53 on Saturday, only 6 seconds slower than Brookes second VIII, so I expect them to be quick approaching Henley. Charles Elwes, with his monstrous 6:04 2k ergo score, will be key to their success.

My Prediction

I think these boys have the potential to make the Friday; anything after this would be a huge achievement.
