Great news… the Henley team won the BSAR 2008 regatta at the first attempt! Against stiff competition from other business school teams, the Henley crew took the top slot winning three out of the five races. See below for the full results table.
The weather during the regatta weekend was against us with the team having to contend with force 8 gales during much of the time on the water. Click the video link below to experience being on board with the crew. Check out the horizon at the top of the screen to see the angle the boat was at most of the time!
During the latter stages of the regatta the wind settled down a bit and the crew had time to relax between tacks.
