Women’s Head of the River – 2009 results

Women's Head 2009 

On Saturday, 7th March, supporters of local and international crews lined Hammersmith Bridge, Putney Embankment and other vantage points along the Thames to watch the Women’s Head of the River Race.   

GB rowers featured in the top three boats home with the composite crew of internationals from Holland and Thames clubs taking the overall win.  Leander Club took second place and the composite from Marlow/Minerva Bath/Reading University/Thames, coxed by Caroline O’Connor, came in a close third. Nottingham RC put in a really strong performance to secure the fourth position and the Senior 2 pennant.
