Having demonstrated our speed throughout the year we were approached by Pembroke to form a composite crew to try and qualify for the Temple Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta. Four members of M1 competed at the Metropolitan Regatta and Marlow Regatta, before becoming the only Oxbridge college crew to qualify for the Temple Challenge Cup at Henley Regatta. Unfortunately we were drawn against a strong crew from the University of Groningen and despite pushing them hard, were defeated in the first round.
The crew (with some help from super sub Karen Clarke) followed this up with wins in IM2 VIIIs and the Sprint VIIIs events at Kingston Regatta and Oxford City Regatta, also winning a collection of small boat events at the latter to pick up a total of 35 pots from 8 events over the weekend! LMHBC has shown we are a force to be reckoned with in the wider rowing community.
