Musto at the Henley Royal Regatta

Richard Gilfillan, from our digital marketing team, raced last week at Henley Royal Regatta:

Unlike multi-lane international regattas, Henley still operates a knock-out draw with only two boats racing in each heat, leaving only the finals to be rowed on the last day.  The length of the course is 1 mile 550 yards, which is 112 metres longer than the standard international distance of 2,000 metres.

His team representing London Rowing Club, all wearing MUSTO Sardinia Gilets, had successful races on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday to meet Banks Rowing Club from Australia in the final on Sunday.

Their Saturday race was 17 seconds quicker than theirs which boosted their confidence for the race, but somehow Banks Rowing Club managed to get half a boat length’s lead early on in the race and maintained that lead all the way through.

Next year, Richard!
