Daniel ‘Fatsculler’ Spring said in his Henley preview: They have established themselves as the top club crew in the country, and possibly the best club crew in Europe. They’ve not been beaten by domestic opposition since 2016 and earlier this season they raced at the Wedau Regatta in Duisburg, Germany. There they finished 2nd to the Deutschlandachter – the World Champion German M8 – by 1.5 seconds. Coach Henry Baillache-Webb has put together an outstanding squad system, probably the only one in Europe that could match the top collegiate programs in the USA.
