The Senior Men are one of the top performing provincial men’s squads in the country, consistently achieving excellent results at major events.


At Henley Royal Regatta, the Senior Men have reached the semi-finals, in the Thames Challenge Cup in 2012, and the quarter-finals, in the Thames Challenge Cup in 2013 and 2017 and the Britannia Challenge Cup in 2016, and have qualified 2 crews at Henley Royal Regatta every year since 2014.


At the Head of the River Race, the Senior Men have recorded consistent finishes in the top 50, and regularly send several competitive crews.


The Senior Men have recent wins at the major summer regattas, including Wallingford Regatta, Metropolitan Regatta, and Marlow Regatta, and provided several crew members, and the coach, of the winning men’s eight at the inaugural Power Eights event in 2018.


The Senior Men aim to build on these successes and expand the squad with clear objectives of quality, competitive rowing, and, ultimately, winning at Henley Royal Regatta.
