Women’s Head of the River Race

December 2, 2010

When: March 19, 2011

Where: London, UK

Details: This year the Women’s Head of the River Race, which is arguably the largest female rowing race in the world, celebrates it’s 70th race.

The event will see 2,700 women (and a few male coxes) led off by Leander Club, which has double Olympic medallist Debbie Flood on board. The race favourites will start amongst the new starters, with a number of GB Team members in it’s line up including triple Olympic silver medallist Katherine Grainger.

Year on year the veteran pennant is receiving more entries, last year Women’s Head introduced the new long distance handicapping ratios, these will be used again this year and the field is wide open.

Previous winners Barnes Bridge Ladies remain favourite, while the oldest crew is a veteran E (217) and has perennial competitor Pauline Rayner onboard.
