Henley Royal Regatta 2017

The Senior Men’s squad aim to compete at the major domestic head races and regattas. The main head races we race at include Pairs Head, Fours Head, Scullers head and VIIIs head. We also compete at a number of regional races in preparation for these events. After the VIII’s head, we turn our attention to regatta racing. We kick start this with a training camp and then race at Wallingford, Met, Nottingham, Reading, Marlow and Henley Royal Regatta.
Post HRR we send some of our top athletes to the Home International Trials and for the rest of the summer, we compete in the smaller regattas such as Kingston Regatta, St Neots Regatta, Sudbury Regatta and Peterborough Regatta.

Over the past few years, the club has gone from strength to strength. We have qualified at least one boat in HRR since 2004, have had regatta wins at Reading and Marlow, and have had wins in pairs head, sculler’s head along with some credible performances in the fours and VIIIs head. This last season we qualified a double into the Open Double Sculls Challenge Cup.

Quintin Head 2018


The senior squad aim to train at the following days and times:

Tuesday 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Wednesday 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Thursday 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Saturday 7:30am – 10:00am and 11:00am – 12:30pm (Technical/Confidence skills)
Sunday 7:00am – 9:00am and 10:00am – 11:00am (Weights Circuit)

We train in small boats (1x, 2-) for the majority of the winter season (August-March) with the exception of Fours head and HORR where we train in the respective boat categories. Some of the squad also scull in the mornings before work. Post HORR potential Henley Royal Regatta standard members are put into crew combinations and we attend a host of events to decide on the final entries for Henley Royal Regatta. This last year (2016/2017) we qualified a boat in the open Double Sculls Challenge Cup. We have a very large catchment area so we tend to do most of our land training individually, however, we do run a biweekly group ergo session.

Wyfold IV have qualified!

Posted by Penny Scorah | June 25, 2010

An excellent row at Henley qualifiers for the mens coxless IV. Well done to Adam, Craig, Graham and Chris! That’s two Broxbourne crews through to Henley this year. The draw takes place at 3pm tomorrow…

Henley Qualification for the Thames VIII

Posted by Chris Scorah | June 21, 2010

After the roller coaster ride that was yesterday, the crew met up for an evening paddle with spirits raised by pre-qualification of the VIII for the Thames cup.  We have now secured qualification for at least one boat for the past seven Henley Royal Regattas.  A strong paddle left the roller coaster ride that was Marlow far behind.  Not many outings until we race!  The IV has to go through the qualifiers on Friday.

Marlow Regatta

Posted by Chris Scorah | June 19, 2010

Saturday 19th June saw the men’s squad make their last trip to Dorney lake for 2010 for Marlow regatta.  We were a little worried about our heat and were expecting to be scrapping to make the rep.  After a dreadful warm up paddle, we somehow managed to put together an awesome start and found ourselves a length up at 700m.  The rowing went a little down hill from there, but we comfortably held on to the lead to win by a length and secure a place in the final.  Unfortunately the final was a bit of a disaster with a boat stopping crab about 20 strokes in leaving us 15 seconds behind the field and racing the umpires launch.  Not a great end to the day.  We must now pick ourselves up to restore confidence and prepare for Henley.

Senior men win at Reading regatta!

Posted by Chris Scorah | June 14, 2010

Senior Men win at Reading Reagatta 2010There were glum faces on Saturday morning as a last minute change to the crew left the VIII(I) feeling a little less confident than usual. But in true Broxbourne style they pulled it together just in time to storm to victory and beat the Reading VIII by 4 lengths in the final.  A fantastic win for the senior men and special congratulations to Alex and Cally who gained their first win at senior level!

Crew ~ Chris Scorah, Craig Allen, John Hounsell, Alex Goodwin, Rob Alexander, Graham Everett, Simon, Chris Turnbull, Cox: Cally, Coach: Matt Stallard.

Met Regatta

Posted by Chris Scorah | June 7, 2010

The weekend of 5th/6th June saw the Senior Men’s squad travel to Dorney lake for the Met Regatta.  We entered IM1 VIIIs on the Saturday and an IM1 coxless IV on the Sunday.  The VIII was fortunate to have a straight final in the afternoon so we were able to have a morning paddle at the club and before packing up and heading to Dorney.  We came third behind Imperial and Radley.  Importantly, we had closed the gap on Radley by about 4 seconds from Wallingford.  On Sunday, we came third in our heat, narrowly putting out a UL crew, and then came 3rd in the final.  No wins, but another set of very promising results.
