Hampton rowers put in a series of strong performances at the National Schools’ Regatta 2023, with three crews winning well-deserved medals.
45 Hampton oarsmen took part in this year’s event, held at Dorney Lake in Eton, which involves the top rowing schools in the country. Day one of the regatta saw the J14 First Eight crew of Billy Trikha, Aiden Hughes, Jack Holden, Archer Jones, Zachary Kuenzel, Oliver Shanley, Patrick Moroney and William Lawson and coxed by Johnny Rofé secure a Bronze medal in their respective final.
On day two of racing, Hampton School Boat Club continued their success with the J16 Second Eight crew of Jerome Sharpe, Flynn Hinchcliffe, Columbus Craven, Gabriel Porter, Ewan Weaver, Nathan Le Bougeant, Adam Gaunt and Kiran Broekhuizen and coxed by Tom Cahill also winning a Bronze, as they held off Latymer Upper School in a nail-biting finish.
Plaudits go to the J18 coxed Four of Sam Berresford, Jasper Bezzant, Oscar Kelly and Oscar Tejura coxed by Joshua Maisuria-Hull. The senior crew rowed a superb tactical race, with just 0.03 seconds separating the top two crews, resulting in a fantastic Silver medal for the Hampton Rowers.

Mr Colin Greenway, Director of Rowing, was delighted with the performances of the Hampton crews:
A fantastic set of results and performances from all squads at this year’s National Schools’ Regatta. It was fantastic to see medals won across so many year groups.
This is a reflection of the commitment and training that they have put into their rowing over the year and they should be very proud of their achievements.
The Hampton Boat Club is looking forward to an exciting summer of racing, with crews competing at a number of regattas, including the Henley Royal Regatta later this month.Back to All Articles
