Nottingham Rowing Club sent nine crews to the annual Fours’ Head of the River on Saturday 10th November. In cool autumnal conditions, 426 quads and fours completed the 4¼ mile Championship Course from Mortlake to Putney (the reverse of the Boat Race course) .

Highlight of the day was a win for the Women’s Senior 4- of Lindsay Marshall, Fiona Bassett, Laura Wheeler and Catherine Lineker, who were the fastest women’s sweep oared boat and finished an impressive 158th overall. First NRC crew home was the Open Elite quad in 42nd place, with a largely Junior IM1 quad being next boat home in a highly creditable 78th place.
