Wolfson College Boat Club, Oxford

Oriel Regatta 2014

Wolfson entered four boats into Oriel Regatta 2014, an annual Oxford race that follows Summer Eights. Oriel Regatta allows crews a bit of side-by-side racing to avenge missed bumps, as well as popular mixed-gender categories that add a bit of fun to the racing.

Not satisfied with just one entry, some of that crew also entered as a mixed four. Again coxed by Stefany Wragg, that four consisted of Thomas Aarholt, Jack Hornsby, Miriam Driessen, and Nicky Huskens. This crew won the mixed 4+ division, defeating LMH and Pembroke followed by Balliol in the finals! Engraved flasks and pride were earned by all!

Last but not least, a powerhouse men’s four was entered, coxed by Sophia Hauck and rowed on by Morgan di Rodi, Andrew Watt, Nicholas Hartley, and Nelson Goering.
