Wolfson College Boat Club, Oxford

Head of the River Race 1996

Wolfson was the only Oxford college to enter two eights in this year’s HORR on the Tideway. The first eight beat Linacre by a few hundredths of a second and the second eight had a good row despite the fact that their cox, Renee, had already rowed the course faster two weeks earlier. Members of the second eight blamed their slower pace on a lack of hatchets and experience but they had so much fun that they were determined to train very hard for summer eights.
