The men’s eight, of Dylan Mitchell, Dan Graham, David Willcox, Freddie Strawson, James Snowball, Freddie Allinson, Alfie Heath, Cameron Spurling and cox Ben Rich, won a fantastic bronze medal in their A final. The crew, coached by Ben Murphy, was formed from the HPP clubs of Newcastle University and Oxford Brookes University as well as cox Ben Rich from University of London BC.

In their first international regatta, the World Class Start women’s double of Becky Wilde and Zara Mulholland won their heat and finished 5th in the final.
