Tim Koch: Henley 2013 – The Prizewinners, Part II

A panoramic view of a grandstand set up for the prize giving.

Part I showed the winners of the Men’s and Women’s Open Events. Part II covers those victorious in the events for Intermediate Men, Club Men, Student Men, Junior Men and Junior Women.

The Ladies’ Challenge Plate (IM8+).

Leander Club and Molesey Boat Club beat Northeastern University ‘A’, USA, by a canvas in an event record time of 5 minutes and 58 seconds.

The Visitors’ Challenge Cup (IM4-).

Another victory for the late Harry Parker. An all Harvard final and rowed in an event record time. The winning ‘A’ crew is standing at the back, the second placed ‘B’ crew is kneeling in the front. Harvard University ‘A’, USA, beat Harvard University ‘B’, USA, by three lengths in an event record time of 6 minutes and 33 seconds.

The Prince of Wales Challenge Cup (IM4x).

Herregud! The bowman of the quad from the Norwegian composite makes the mistake of looking up the course from the start. Many experienced Henley competitors will not do this. Some say you can see the curve of the earth.

Leander win a new hat. Leander Club ‘A’ beat Aalesunds Roklub and Moss Roklub, Norway, by 4 1/2 lengths in an event record time of 6 minutes and 23 seconds.

The Thames Challenge Cup (CM8+).

Griffen Boat Club (Abingdon School Alumni) beat Upper Thames Rowing Club ‘A’ by 1 length in a time of 6 minutes and 17 seconds.

The Wyfold Challenge Cup (CM4-).

Tyrian Club (University of London Alumni) beat Rob Roy Boat Club by a canvas in a time of 6 minutes and 40 seconds.

The Britannia Challenge Cup (CM4+).

Taurus Boat Club ‘A’ (Oxford Brooks University Alumni) beat Union Boat Club, USA, by 1 length in a time of 6 minutes and 54 seconds.

Temple Challenge Cup (SM8+).

Laga treated the prize giving to a rendition of their club song. It was in Dutch (naturally) and had quite a few verses but, as can be seen by the reaction of Dame Di Ellis on the left, it went down well. Delftsche Studenten Roeivereeniging Laga, Holland, beat Harvard University, USA, by 2 1/4 lengths in a time of 6 minutes and 14 seconds.

The Prince Albert Challenge Cup (SM4+).

Imperial College London ‘A’ beat Isis Boat Club by 3 lengths in a time of 7 minutes.

The Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup (JM8+).

Abingdon School beat St. Edward’s School by 1/2 a length in an event record time of 6 minutes and 17 seconds.

The Fawley Challenge Cup (JM4x).

Marlow Rowing Club ‘A’ beat Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School by 1/2 length in an event record time of 6 minutes and 39 seconds.

The Junior Women’s Quadruple Sculls (JW4x).

Latymer on their way to the start.

I’m so happy! Latymer Upper School beat Headington School by 4 1/4 lengths in an event record time of 7 minutes and 26 seconds.
