Women’s Eights Head of the River Race 2009 — Results

The weekend saw the biggest Women’s Eights Head of the River Race ever seen on the tideway, with a number of international crews returning after the Olympics. Three crews from Putney Town raced the course and managed to avoid the forecast miserable weather that subsequently lashed the Hammersmith head the next day.

Crew Status Position Finish Time
33 – Putney Town ‘A’ S3 58 20:36.05
109 – Putney Town ‘B’ S4 76 20:55.06
165 – Putney Town ‘C’ S4 254 23:11.11

Particularly worth mentioning were crew ‘B’ finishing third in category just ten seconds behind the category winner.
