Record Result for Boat Club

Published 21st Nov 2011

On Saturday 5th November the Boat Club entered Fours Head, the biggest rowing race in the country for fours that included most of the current GB Rowing team and recent Olympians. The Quad, consisting of Phil Elton, Tom Mee, Ashley Epps and Nick Bright (see picture) gave the race of their lives and came in the top 15% of the country. In their category (which included ex-Olympians) the only universities to beat them were Imperial, London, Leeds, Reading and Bath (all of whom have GB U23 athletes in their teams). This is the highest result ever achieved by Team Surrey in any of the major national head races.

Henry Pelly, a University of Surrey Student who was rowing in a Molesey boat for this event, came second in the Elite coxed fours (the highest category for fours available). This placed him 14th overall in the whole event. The only crew to beat him in the Elite coxed fours had four world champions in the boat and three of those also have Olympic medals.
