Perfect weather and exciting racing entertained an enthusiastic crowd of supporters at the 36th Varsity Lightweight Womens Boat Race at Henley yesterday. The contrast in atmospheric conditions with HBR 2018 could not have been stronger. Warm temperatures and a gentle breeze replaced the freezing weather and strong winds experienced last year, allowing excellent racing under fair conditions. What was the same this year was the competitiveness, technical skill and quality of racing demonstrated by the Varsity Women's Lightweights - characteristics that have become a feature of this annual fixture.
Prizes were awarded by Zoe Lee, former member of OUWBC, World Champion and stroke of the GB silver medal VIII at the Rio Olympics.More
