British Style Rowing In 1926

The always reliable Tim Koch has found an interesting newsreel on British Pathe regarding yesterday’s HBTS entry on women’s style rowing in Germany. While the German women were competing in this discipline for the first time at a regatta in 1919, the British women followed soon thereafter, according to the 1926 newsreel “Oars-woman-ship. Reading girls gain narrow victory over Oxford girls – by 8 points – in first competition for style in women’s fours”.
