Head of the Schuylkill regatta

The Winchester eight-oar crew traveled to Philadelphia in October to compete in the Head of the Schuylkill regatta and rowed to a very impressive second place finish out of 62 crews in the high school division.  

The Winchester crew covered the four-kilometer course in 13:10:14. Only the crew from the Brunswick School in Greenwich, CT., was speedier.  The results can be found here

After the race, the American Friends of Winchester College hosted a reception for the rowers and assorted Wykehamists in Philadelphia.

The Winchester crew operated out of the University of Pennsylvania boat house, and trained with the LaSalle Prep crew in the days prior to the race. All the rowers were put up with families from the local Germantown Friends School. The rowers also took a day trip up to New York city before returning to England after a very busy week.  

The trip was successfully organized by coach Dan Pounds and Gordon Junior Fellow Dara Alizadeh. The crew members were:

Dent Goodman (E, 2012-)
Will Passmore (I, 2012-)
Alex Wythe (Coll, 2012-)
Milford Killian-Dawson (E, 2012-)
Hugo Durward (E, 2012-)
Robbie Boswall (E, 2011-)
