Tackling the Mighty Charles

The Grange Rowing Club travelled to Boston, Massachusetts, to take part in The Head of The Charles regatta – one of the biggest events on the global rowing calendar.

Over half a million spectators cheer the athletes on from the banks of the mighty River Charles as rowers from around the world compete on the 4500 metre course.

The 21 Grange rowers who made the trip were well prepared and in good company as Sir Steve Redgrave and Sir Matthew Pinsent have come out of retirement to compete.

Both the boys and girls eights performed well against very tough opposition, Scott Ozsanlav-Harris and Ben Holt had a good race finishing in the middle of the pack as did single sculler Katherine Owen racing over the three mile course.
