The prizes were presented by very good double act of Jess Eddie (right) and Katie Greaves (left), who both won Silver in the GB Women’s Eight at Rio. The Prime Minister, Theresa May, MP for nearby Maidenhead, was originally due to award the trophies and medals but cancelled due to recent events.
The regatta has a fine collection of trophies, some new, some originally from events that now no longer exist. This explains why the name of the late Dan Topolski is on the silverware for the J16 Women’s Coxed Fours event.
This elegant trophy is now the George Innes Cup for Elite Single Sculls. Presumably, the figure is of Nike, the Greek goddess who personified victory. She was the sister of Kratos (Strength), Bia (Force), and Zelus (Zeal).
Headington School collect the prize for Junior Eights from Katie Greaves. On the far left is Regatta Chairman (HWR’s term, not mine), Miriam Luke (née Batten).
Headington pose for pictures while the silver figure of Doggett’s winner Tom Green Senior, atop of what is now the Nina Padwick Trophy for J16 Quad Sculls, looks on.
